Reboxetine mesysate effect in mice. Brain MCP-1..
By Anonymous on 01/10/2018
Assay Type: In Vivo
Species: Mouse

Reboxetine mesylate was dissolved in saline serum and 20 mg/kg (100 μL) were administered intraperitoneally to mice. After 24h, brain samples were taken and MCP-1 synthesis was analyzed by immunohistochemistry. This way, we confirmed that reboxetine treatment induces MCP-1 synthesis in cortical astrocytes.

In the figure, MCP-1 is labeled in red and GFAP in green.
