From: Comparative gene expression profiling between optic nerve and spinal cord injury in Xenopus laevis reveals a core set of genes inherent in successful regeneration of vertebrate central nervous system axons

Fig. 7

Cellular localization of select DESR genes by in situ hybridization of retina at the peak phase of regenerative axon outgrowth after optic nerve injury. Genes are as indicated in their respective panels and represent a range of fold-change values (0.03 < |log2(fold change)| < 3), and FDRs (0.002–0.05), as well as relatively low (FPKM < 50) and high (FPKM > 100) levels of expression. Examples of up-regulated (ae) and down-regulated (f, g) genes are included. Column 1 (left), operated eye; column 2 (right), contralateral unoperated eye from the same animal and processed on the same slide as that of its adjacent column. Arrows indicate cells of the retinal ganglion cell layer, which comprises the neurons that regenerate an axon. Abbreviations: RGC, retinal ganglion cells; INL, inner nuclear layer; PR, photoreceptors. Scale bar in G2 applies to all panels
