Bilateral Neuropathy of Primary Sensory Neurons by the Chronic Compression of Multiple Unilateral DRGs

Figure 5

ATF3 expression was markedly increased in both ipsilateral and contralateral DRG neurons following the mCCD. (a) ATF3 expression in ipsilateral and contralateral DRGs in control and mCCD rats on 1st, 7th, 10th, 14th, and 21st postoperative days (inset: higher magnification, scale bar = 20 μm). (b) Percentage of ATF3 positive cells in ipsilateral and contralateral DRGs following the multiple DRG compression. Scale bar = 50 μm. Bonferroni test, , compared to the bilateral DRG neurons of control rats.
