(A) Quantitative thresholding analysis revealed a significant increase in the expression of astrocytic markers in the Cln6nclf mouse at 4 months in the thalamus. (B–C) Elevations in astrocytic activation, marked by GFAP labeling, became apparent in the S1BF region at 4 months and in the V1 region of the cerebral cortex at 6 months in the Cln6nclf mouse.
