Myelin vacuolization in Glialcam−/−, Mlc1−/− and Glialcam−/−Mlc1−/− mouse models. Haematoxylin-eosin staining of sagittal sections of the cerebellum of 19- and 61-week-old mice showed similar levels of myelin vacuolization in Glialcam−/−, Mlc1−/− and Glialcam−/−Mlc1−/− animals. As a control we show the same area of a wild-type mouse at 19 weeks. The inset shows the percentage of vacuolation in double KO animal versus the vacuolation observed in Glialcam KO animals (n = 3) and Mlc1 KO animals (n = 3) considering each age independently, without substracting the minor vacuolization observed in wild-type animals. Data were analyzed by GraphPad Prism software. In order to compare the different groups (dKO vs Glialcam−/− and dKO vs Mlc1−/−), one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by post-hoc Bonferroni’s multiple comparison test was used. ns: not significative. Scale bar, 400 μm
