Fig. 6

The percentage of Olig2+ astrocytes in different mouse CNS regions. a Sagittal overview of the mouse brain indicating a variety of brain regions of interest. bm High magnification images showing the olig2 and S100β double immune-staining in different mouse brain regions. White arrowheads indicate co-localization of Olig2 and S100β, while white arrows indicate astrocytes that do not express Olig2. Note that in the AON (c), STR (e), HIP (i), CB (l) and the cortical areas including the MO (d), SS (f), VIS (g) and the RSP (h), few astrocytes expresse Olig2, while in the OB (b), TH (j), MB (k), and the MY (m), majority astrocytes (> 70%) have Olig2 immune reactivity. n Coronal overview of the mouse SC showing Olig2+ astrocytes. o High magnification image displaying the co-localization of Olig2 and S100β in the SC. Note that most of the astrocytes (89.3%) in the SC expresse Olig2. p The ratio of Olig2+ cells in total of the S100β+ cells in each brain region and the SC. Data are represented as mean ± SEM. Scale bars: 1000 μm (a), 50 μm (bm, o), 500 μm (n)
