Spirulina Promotes Stem Cell Genesis and Protects against LPS Induced Declines in Neural Stem Cell Proliferation

Figure 2

BrdU found in microglia only in the control fed mice following LPS.

Low magnification confocal photomicrographs were used to determine if the BrdU was labeling non-neural cells. (A–C) In the control animals without LPS the majority of the BrdU cells were not found to be microglia. (D–E) In the control diet fed rats treated with LPS note that fewer BrdU cells were found and that many of the BrdU labeled cells were microglia. White arrow shown in high magnification in Fig. 3D–F Yellow arrow shown in high magnification in Fig. 3G–I. (G–I) In the spirulina fed rats the BrdU cells were not found to be microglia.
