Survival and migrating of OECs in vivo, and localization of BDNF. Compared with the situation of injured control group (B), implanted OECs had the capability of surviving in the injured spinal cord after implantation (A). The OEC with green fluorescence around the site of injury were showed in C, indicating the transplanted cells could survive and migrate in spinal cord till one month after injury. Simultaneously, neurons in the dorsal horn could express BDNF,which emit red fluorescence (D-F). The quantitative analysis was showed in G.
