To elucidate blood-nerve barrier function and tight-junction protein expression in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG), we analyzed the vascular permeability in the rat DRG by i.v. administration of fluorescent Evans-blue albumin (EBA) and compared it with the localization of claudin-1, claudin-5, and occludin by immunoconfocal microscopy. In the cell body-rich(More)
Limited perineurial injury, known as a perineurial window, can lead to neuropathic pain. This article hypothesizes that the recovery of the perineurium is associated with the intercellular junctional proteins. It analyzes the expressions of occludin, ZO-1, and connexin 43 by immunoconfocal microscopy. Seven days after injury, immunoreactivities for occludin(More)
