Effects of Vitamin D3 on the NADPH Oxidase and Matrix Metalloproteinase 9 in an Animal Model of Global Cerebral Ischemia

Figure 5

Expression of MMP9. Group I () was sham-operated animals, which underwent the same surgical procedure without vessel occlusion (control), group II () was subjected to ischemia/reperfusion (I/R), and group III () was treated with vitamin D3 and then subjected to I/R (). All experiments were performed in synaptosomal fraction in different brain structures. (b) Activity of MMP9 in animal serum. Results are presented as mean ± SE. versus control, versus I/R, and versus I/R.
