RNA-seq analysis of the key long noncoding RNAs and mRNAs related to cognitive impairment after cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation

Figure 6. Neuroinflammation and neuronal apoptosis were markedly augmented in the hippocampus following CA/CPR. Hippocampus was collected at 4h and 72h after resuscitation for the detection of neuronal apoptosis and inflammatory cytokines, respectively. (AE). The levels of CXCL1 (A), CCL2 (B), TNF-α (C), IL-6 (D), and IL-1β mRNA (E). (F). Representative images for TUNEL detection in the hippocampal CA1 subarea. (G). The percentage of TUNEL-positive cells in the CA1 region. (H). Representative images for TUNEL detection in the hippocampal CA3 subarea. (I). The percentage of TUNEL-positive cells in the CA3 region. The cells pointed by the red arrows represent typical TUNEL-positive cells. n = 6 per group. **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001. CXCL1, chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 1; CCL2, chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2; TNF-α, tumor necrosis factor α; IL-1β, interleukin-1β; IL-6, interleukin-6.
