Artesunate promotes the proliferation of neural stem/progenitor cells and alleviates Ischemia-reperfusion Injury through PI3K/Akt/FOXO-3a/p27kip1 signaling pathway

Figure 2. The number of Nestin positive and/or Ki67 positive cells in NSPCs were increased by 0.8 μmol/L ART. (A) Representative confocal images indicating Nestin (green) and Ki67 (red) staining in NSPCs following ART treatment (0.8μmol/L). (B) Quantification of the Nestin positive cells. (C) Quantification of the number of Nestin+Ki67 positive cells. Data are shown as the mean ± SEM. *p<0.05, **p<0.01. Scale bar = 10 μm.
