Table 3. Mean intensity of ANP staining in the retina

The intensity of retinal ANP staining was graded qualitatively as background (0; the level of staining seen in the negative controls), weak (1), moderate (2), or intense (3; the highest level of immunoreactivity). The values in the table are the mean intensity with standard deviation. For each retinal specimen, staining intensity was recorded for nerve fiber layer (NFL), ganglion cell layer (GCL), inner plexiform layer (IPL), inner nuclear layer (INL), outer plexiform layer (OPL), and outer nuclear layer (ONL). An average score was then calculated for each retinal layer within each group.
