Cx43- and Cx30- immunoreaction in the SCN in 12:12 LD. a Representative photomicrographs of Cx30- and Cx43-Immunoreaction (Ir) in the SCN of C57Bl/6 mice kept under 12:12 LD. Scale bar: 300 μm. b Quantification of Cx30-Ir in the SCN. c Quantification of Cx43-Ir in the SCN. Data are expressed as mean +/− SEM of n = 3 mice per time point. Significant differences among different time points were analysed by one way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s posthoc test. Both, Cx30- (F = 7.41; P = 0.002) and Cx43- (F = 13.17; P = 0.0002) Ir levels were significantly different among different time points under 12:12 LD conditions. *:P ≤ 0.05 vs. ZT22; **:P ≤ 0.01; ***:P ≤ 0.001 vs. ZT22. White bars indicate the light phase, black bars indicate the dark phase
