Table 1 Experimental design for TEM study (transverse sections)

From: Changes to mitochondrial ultrastructure in optic nerve vulnerable to secondary degeneration in vivo are limited by irradiation at 670 nm

  Day 1 n animals (mitochondria analysed) Day 7 n animals (mitochondria analysed)
Normal 4 (344)
Normal handled 4 (224) -
PT unhandled 4 (584) 4 (272)
PT handled 4 (398) 4 (306)
PT 670 nm 4 (466) 4 (327)
Total n 36 (2,921)
  1. Note an additional day 1 cohort was used for longitudinal sections. TEM is transmission electron microscopy. Numbers shown are animals (total number of mitochondria analysed in transverse sections for each treatment or injury group).
