From: Ketamine-induced apoptosis in the mouse cerebral cortex follows similar characteristic of physiological apoptosis and can be regulated by neuronal activity

Elevating neuronal activity with hM3Dq/CNO attenuated ketamine-induced apoptosis. a Schematic of the experimental procedure. b Representative confocal images of S1 sections from P9 mice labelled with CC3 (red), hM3Dq-mCitrine (green), and Nissl (blue). Conditions as indicated. Scale bar is 200 μm. c Quantitation of CC3+ cell number per mm2 S1, treatment conditions as indicated. hM3Dq/CNO treatment significantly reduced the number of CC3+ cells in the Keta + Dex group, but not in the PBS group. ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001, n.s., not significant, using two-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni post hoc test. d Proportion of hM3Dq-mCitrine+ cells that are CC3+, conditions as indicated. *** P < 0.001, n.s., not significant, using two-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni post hoc test. e Distribution of CC3+ cells in different cortical layers. n.s., not significant, using two-way ANOVA followed by Bonferroni post hoc test. 4 mice were used per condition, 10 brain slices from each mouse were quantitated. Data are shown as the mean ± SEM
