Fig. 3

Co-localization of LC3 and occludin in OGD-exposed brain endothelial cells. After exposure of bEnd.3 cells to OGD for 18 h, cells were stained for occludin and LC3 by immunofluorescence. Representative images are shown. Scale bar: 50 μm, scale bar in the magnified images: 30 μm. White arrows show the co-localization of occludin and LC3. Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient were calculated using JACoP. Data are presented as the mean ± SEM and analyzed by the Student’s t-test. **p < 0.01 vs. control
