Oral administration of VCE-003.2 exerts a pro-neurogenic action. Mice were analyzed 4 weeks after lesion induced by AAV-htt16Q and AAV-htt94Q bilateral injection and administered daily with vehicle or VCE-003.2 (10 mg/kg). a Confocal microscopy characterization of migrating neuroblasts identified with doublecortin antibody and quantification in the striatum of the indicated mice groups. b Effective neurogenesis was determined by quantification of double positive cells labelled with BrdU and NeuN antibodies. AAV-htt16Q Vehicle and VCE-003.2 (n = 7 and 5, respectively); AAV-htt94Q Vehicle and VCE-003.2 (n = 9 and 11, respectively). Statistics: One-way ANOVA. a F = 14.43; R2 = 0.69. ##p < 0.01; q = 6.95 AAV-htt94Q VCE-003.2 vs. AAV-htt94Q Veh and **p < 0.01; q = 7.59 AAV-htt94Q VCE-003.2 vs. AAV-htt16Q Veh. b F = 13.99; R2 = 0.59. ##p < 0.01; q = 6.50 AAV-htt94Q VCE-003.2 vs. AAV-htt94Q Veh and **p < 0.01; q = 7.59 AAV-htt94Q VCE-003.2 vs. AAV-htt16Q Veh. Scale bar, 100 μm
