Effect of bloodletting puncture at HTWP on the mRNA expression of occludin, claudin-5, ICAM-1 and VEGF, which was detected by RT-qPCR at indicated time points (5 h, 24 h, and 72 h) (n = 10 per group). a The mRNA level of occludin. b The mRNA level of claudin-5. c The mRNA level of ICAM-1. d The mRNA level of VEGF. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 vs. sham-operated goup. # P < 0.05, ## P < 0.01 vs. pMCAO group at the same time points
