Effect of partial sciatic nerve ligation on NR1 and NR2B the ipsilateral ventral hippocampus. Representative coronal sections stained for NR1 (A
E) and NR2B (I
M) in specimens from the control (A, I) and PSNL groups (E, M). The higher magnification images of NR1 and NR2B staining in CA1, CA2, and CA3 of the ipsilateral hippocampus are displayed for the control (B, C, D) and PSNL group (F, G, H); Those for the control (J, K, L) and PSNL groups (N, O, P) respectively, correspond to the labeled regions in A, E, I, and M. Scale bar: 100 μm in P; 400 μm in M. (Q
R) Quantitative analysis of OD for NR1 and NR2B in ipsilateral sides of CA1, CA2, and CA3 of the whole hippocampus for each group. n = 6 for each group, ***p < 0.001,**p < 0.01,*p < 0.05 represents statistically significant differences compared with control group.
