Effect of hypothermic treatment on the Et-1 induced increase in GFAP expression. Activation of astrocytes as determined by the expression of GFAP (A) in a N rat and (B) in a H20, H60 and H120 rat, 24 hours after the administration of Et-1. The graphs show the overall expression in striatum (C) and cortex (D) of the different treatment protocols. The number of rats in the S and S + H group is 7 and 4 respectively; in the N pool 12 and in every H group 7. *Significantly different compared to the N group. §Significantly different (p < 0.05) from each other.
