Supplementary Figure 6

Disconnection of the adrenal glands from spinal innervation (adrenotransplantation) resulted in only subtle differences in organ shrinkage between high versus low thoracic level SCI (Th1/Th9). This held true for all examined cell populations, including CD4+ (a), CD19+ (b), CD8+ (c), CD11c+, and CD11b+ cells (not shown). Data are mean ± SEM, n=3-7 animals per group. * p<0.05; ** p<0.01; *** p<0.001, 1-way ANOVA with Tukey’s multiple comparison test.
