Figure 5. Sal ameliorates tissue structure damage in the ischemic penumbra after MCAO/R. (A, B) Representative images of ischemic lesions and statistical analysis of infarct volume at 7 days postinjury. (C) Neurological deficits. (D) HE staining at 7 days after MCAO/R (the scale bars are 100 μm and 20 μm). (E) Nissl staining images (the scale bars are 100 μm and 20 μm). (F) TUNEL staining in the ischemic penumbra (the scale bar is 20 μm). Values are expressed as the mean ± SD. #p < 0.05, ##p < 0.01 vs. sham; *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 vs. MCAO/R.
