Growth differentiation factor-11 supplementation improves survival and promotes recovery after ischemic stroke in aged mice

Figure 5. Exogenous GDF11 reduced gliosis and increased CD31+ endothelial cells. (A) decline in GFAP + and (B) Iba-1 + cells in MCAo GDF11 group at day 30 post-stroke, (C) increase in CD31+ endothelial cells in the MCAo GDF11 cohort at day 30 after stroke. Magnification 20X. Scale bar 20μm. n=5. *p<0.05.
