Transplanting Rac1-silenced bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells promote neurological function recovery in TBI mice

Silencing Rac1, p22-phox, p47-phox, or p67-phox reduces OGD-induced ROS production. (A) Intracellular ROS production, as measured by flow cytometry analysis of DCFH-DA probe fluorescence. (B) ROS production after 0 h, 12 h and 18 h OGD treatment. ROS production was notably increased after an OGD.
