eEF2 protein is expressed at a low level in degenerative IVD. a Immunohistochemistry images of eEF2 protein expression in normal IVD and degenerative IVD (× 100 in left panel, × 400 in right panel). eEF2-positive particle is stained brownish yellow in notochord cells and chondrocytes. b Positive rate of eEF2 protein expression in normal IVD and degenerative IVD; n = 15; positive rate represents the mean value of the percentage of positively stained cells in total cells; data were expressed by mean ± standard deviation; comparison of data between two groups was conducted using a t-test; *, p < 0.05 vs. normal IVD; IVD, intervertebral disc; IDD, intervertebral disc degeneration; eEF2, eukaryotic elongation factors-2
