TT inhibited increased MMP-2 and MMP-9 expression after SCI. ac Representative Western blots and quantification of MMP-2/9 7 d after SCI in each group; columns represent the mean ± SD (n = 5). d TEM shows EC-EC junctions in the S, M, and TM. Arrows indicate TJ electron-dense bands and open TJs. Scale bars = 1.0 µm. e Quantification of the TJ gap width among the S, M, and TM groups; columns represent the mean ± SD. f Quantification of the TJ length among the S, M, and TM groups; columns represent the mean ± SD. (#p, *p < 0.05; ##p, **p < 0.01; ###p, ***p < 0.001)
