  1. Summary of physiological data obtained during CBF measurements. Weight (g) before MCAo: Body weights of all mice entered into the CBF experiments (10 VEC+/+ and 16 VEC+/-). Weight (g) before CBF: Body weights of all mice which had survived up to this point (N = 8 VEC+/+ and 11 VEC+/- mice). MABP (mmHg), heart rate (n/min), pH, pCO2 (mmHg), and pO2 (mmHg) were also assessed in 8 VEC+/+ mice and 11 VEC+/- mice. Please note that, following physiological measurements, one VEC+/+ mouse died during preparation for blood flow experiments. Moreover, due to technical issues with the femoral artery catheter, one VEC+/+ and one VEC+/- animal each could not be used for measurement of CBF (see legend to Fig. 4)
