Effects of SSM treatment on neurofilament (NF-200) expression in the sciatic nerve following sciatic nerve crushed injury. Upper: photomicrographs of NF-200-immunoreactive fibers in the sciatic nerve. (A) Sham operation group, (B) SNCI-induced group, (C) SNCI-induced and 0.1 g/kg SSM-treated group, (D) SNCI-induced and 1 g/kg SSM-treated group, and (E) SNCI-induced and 10 g/kg SSM-treated group. (F) Whole nerve. The scale bars represent 400 μm (A-E) and 100 μm (F). Lower: optical density of NF-200 expression in each group. The results are presented as the means ± standard errors of the mean (SEMs). <0.05 compared to the sham operation group. <0.05 compared to the SNCI-induced group.
