Expression of structure proteins and inflammatory regulator proteins in the lesion center. Western blot analysis showed time course change in the expression levels of β-actin, CAPG, CAPZB, CATD, galectin-3 (LEG3) and LXN. The proteins extracted from the LC of the injured spinal cords at the different survival time points (day 1 and 14) after SCI or from sham control. The same blot was stripped and reprobed with ant-ERK44/42 antibody as internal loading control. Relative intensity of the indicated protein level bands normalized to ERK 44 was measured. Data are presented as means ± SEM from three separate experiments. *p < 0.05 versus sham control.
