Figure 3. NAC reduces the loss of ChAT-positive motor neurons within the cervical spinal cord of wobbler mice at 9 weeks of age.

Total numbers of choline acetyl transferase positive neurons are indicated for each group (n=4). Numbers represent counts from every 5th section in a serial series of 10 micron transverse sections through the entire c4-c7 region. Values represent the mean +S.E.M.,(*) signifies a significant difference (p<0.05) compared to wr/wr group.
