Neurodegeneration-associated factor (NDAF) expressions, including transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1, glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), transglutaminase type 2 (TG2), S100B and claudin-5, increased in the hippocampus of Toxocara canis-infected mice inoculated with low-, medium- and high-dose infections at 8, 16 and 20 weeks post-infection (wpi). a Protein expression levels of NDAFs assessed by Western blotting. b-f Quantification of NDAF protein expressions represented as the mean with SD. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001 indicate a significant difference with uninfected control mice at 10 days post-infection (dpi) and 20 wpi. #Indicates a significant difference (P < 0.05) between 10 dpi- and 20 wpi-uninfected control mice. Abbreviation: NS, no significant difference between 10 dpi- and 20 wpi-uninfected control mice
