Figure 10: Validation of candidate long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the brain tissue of IR rats with ISP and RIP treatment. Six lncRNAs that were significantly upregulated in the ischemic postconditioning groups (ISP vs. IR and RIP vs. IR) were selected for quantitative real-time reverse transcription-PCR verification. Data are shown as the mean ± SEM (n = 3). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 (one-way analysis of variance followed by Tukey’s post hoc test). IR: Ischemia/reperfusion; ISP: in situ ischemic postconditioning; RIP: remote ischemic postconditioning.
