Effects of chronic stress and thermal injury on PFC and hypothalamic TrkB and p-TrkB levels. p-TrkB and TrkB protein levels in the ipsilateral and contralateral PFC and hypothalamus are shown by Simple Western blot representative image (above quantification graphs of ad). p-TrkB and TrkB protein level was comparable among experimental groups in ipsilateral and contralateral PFC (a, b). p-TrkB and TrkB protein was significantly increased in contralateral hypothalamus of S + I group in comparison to NS and NS + I groups and also compared to ipsilateral S + I group (c, d). NS non-stress, S stress, I injury. n = 5/group. * = P < 0.05 and *** = P < 0.001
