A noradrenergic lesion aggravates the effects of systemic inflammation on the hippocampus of aged rats - Fig 6

BDNF levels in serum (A) and hippocampus (B) as determined by ELISA after short-term or long-term exposure to LPS. Serum levels are expressed in pg/mL ± SEM and hippocampal levels are expressed in pg/mg protein ± SEM. BDNF levels in serum and hippocampus were significantly reduced in DSP4-lesioned animals after LPS challenge in the short-term subgroup compared to Ctrl.
