Scatter plots from all rats (a-c) and rats with diabetes (d-f). Scatter plots from all rats pooled (a-c) with numbers of ATF-3 stained cells (lesion site) and axonal outgrowth (a; rho = 0.59, p = 0.0001), preoperative blood glucose level and cleaved caspase 3 stained cells (b, lesion site; rho = 0.69, p = 0.0001; c. in distal nerve segment; rho = 0.74, p = 0.0001). Scatter plots from diabetic rats (d-f) with preoperative blood glucose levels and axonal outgrowth (d, rho = 0.60, p = 0.005; d), number of cleaved caspase 3 and ATF-3 stained cells (e, lesion site; rho = 0.51, p = 0.02) and preoperative blood glucose level and number of ATF-3 stained cells (f, distal nerve segment; rho = 0.66, p = 0.001).
