Aconitase and citrate synthase activities after PT injury +/− R/NIR-IT. Aconitase activity (mean ± SEM) increased in ventral ON vulnerable to secondary degeneration after PT injury compared to normal (A) and with R/NIR-IT compared to PT day 1 in both ventral and dorsal ON (C). Citrate synthase activity (mean ± SEM) decreased after injury compared to normal (B) and following R/NIR-IT compared to PT at day 7 (D). *Significantly different at p ≤ 0.05.
