From: Neuromelanin, neurotransmitter status and brainstem location determine the differential vulnerability of catecholaminergic neurons to mitochondrial DNA deletions

Figure 2

Differential susceptibility of catecholaminergic pigmented neurons to deletions of mitochondrial DNA. Levels of ΔmtDNA raise in the order of non-catecholaminergic (TH-/NeuN+) < catecholaminergic/non-pigmented (TH+/NM-) < catecholaminergic/pigmented neurons (TH+/NM+). Differences were significant at p = 0.005 (**; Mann-Whitney-Test) and p = 0.001 (***; Kruskal-Wallis-Test).
