PPAR-γ Mediates Ta-VNS-Induced Angiogenesis and Subsequent Functional Recovery after Experimental Stroke in Rats

Figure 5

Inhibition of PPAR-γ attenuates the ta-VNS-mediated promotion of endothelial cell proliferation at 28 d after MCAO/R. (a) The figure shows ki67 (red) and CD31 (green) double staining in each group. Arrows show the colocalization of CD31 and Ki67 (). (b) Statistical comparison of the proliferating endothelial cells in each group ( vs sham+LV-control group, vs I/R+LV-control group, and vs I/R+ta-VNS+LV-control group).
