In vivo administration of ERK inhibitor or siRNA defends ischemia-induced impairment in blood–brain barrier integrity. a SCH772984 treatment protects blood–brain barrier integrity after bilateral common carotid artery occlusion. b siRNA against ERK1/2 treatment protects the blood–brain barrier integrity after ischemia induction. Data is presented as mean ± SEM. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 and ***p < 0.001
