Ultrastructural changes at the site of lesion in animals with SCI visualized by transmission electron microscopy. Representative images of spinal cord sections obtained from uninjured or SCI-mice admistered with saline, BMMCs or BMMC-IGF1 are shown. Morphological patterns of collagen fibers (a-d), degeneration vacuoles (e-h) and myelin sheath (i-l) were evaluated, as indicated by black arrows. Scale bar = 5 μm
