From: Oral administration of the cannabigerol derivative VCE-003.2 promotes subventricular zone neurogenesis and protects against mutant huntingtin-induced neurodegeneration

Fig. 6

Subventricular zone neural progenitor mobilization is increased by oral administration of VCE-003.2. Mice were analyzed 4 weeks after lesion induced by AAV-htt16Q and AAV-htt94Q bilateral injection and daily treatment with vehicle or VCE-003.2 (10 mg/kg). Confocal microscopy characterization of the SVZ was performed with Ascl1-specific antibody in the indicated experimental groups. Quantification of transit amplifying progenitors labelled with Ascl1. AAV-htt-16Q (Vehicle and VCE-003.2, n = 5 each) and AAV-htt94Q (Vehicle and VCE-003.2, n = 5 each). Statistics: One-way ANOVA. F = 10.12; R2 = 0.65. ##p < 0.01; q = 4.25 AAV-htt94Q VCE-003.2 vs. AAV-htt94Q Veh and **p < 0.01; q = 7.12 AAV-htt94Q VCE-003.2 vs. AAV-htt16Q Veh. Scale bar, 100 μm
