Figure 3. Intrastromal injection of NP2-targeting amiRNA has no effect on the recruitment of macrophage into the cornea. A: Immunohistochemical staining for CD11b in corneal whole-mounts (n=6 mice per group). Original magnification, 200×. B: Quantitative analysis of immunohistochemistry showed that NP2 knockdown had no significant effect on the recruitment of CD11b-positive macrophages into the cornea immediately before high-risk
corneal transplantation (7 days after suture placement). Bars, SEM. The asterisk indicates a p>0.05 versus saline control.
