  • Fluorescence intensities of immunohistochemistry images without subtraction of background levels of fluorescence. Mean ± SEM are from groups of six euthermic animals (12 hr after arousal) and six hibernating animals (6 d after torpor entry). Proteins investigated are MAP2, Piccolo, PSD95, and synaptophysin. Fluorescence intensity was averaged from three 625 μm2 squares per image across the six animals per group.
