Figure 4

Microglial activation in the hippocampus was inhibited by mast cell stabilization and deficiency. (a) Iba1 in area CA1 of the hippocampus was detected by immunostaining. Scale bar is 25 μm. (b, c) Expression levels of CD86 and CD32 (M1 phenotype markers) at 1 day after surgery were measured by real-time PCR. # versus WT group. Data are presented as the ().
