Analysis of olfactory neurons in the ON at different time points post X-ray irradiation.A,B, localisation and quantification of carnosine-positive neurons (n=3 mice); C,D, OMP-positive neurons (n=3 mice) and E,F, βIIITubulin-positive neurons (n=3 mice). (Carnosine: F(5,12) = 5.765, p = 0.0061; OMP:F(5,12) = 3.079, p = 0.0513). * p ≤ 0.05, ** p ≤ 0.01, n.s. not significant. A, carnosine, C, OMP and E, βIIITubulin labelling in the naive control group. (* white) Axon bundle. Dashed line indicates basal lamina. Scale bars = 50 μm.
