Cell number and proliferation of reactive astrocytes were studied quantitatively in the stabbed cerebral cortex of adult mice, using immunohistochemistry for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and [3H]thymidine autoradiography. GFAP-positive astrocytes increased in cell number gradually from 24 to 96 h after stabbing, and their immunoreactivity became intense. The maximum number of GFAP-positive cells was about 4.5 times normal in the layers II-VI of the cortex, whereas it was only 1.5… CONTINUE READING
