Figure 6

Relative mRNA expression of VEGF-A, Flt-1 and Flk-1 in the retina at 8 days after vessel ligation. The relative expression of VEGF (A) and its Flt-1 receptor (F) is increased in the 2VO groups with respect to the sham group of animals while the relative expression of Flk-1 decreases in 2VO groups compared with sham-group (G). NGF injection reduced the damage-induced VEGF mRNA expression. Results were considered statistically significant when one-way ANOVA and post hoc Tukey's test, # p < 0.01, ### p < 0.001; Student's t test: *p < 0.05.
