BMSCs ameliorated lung function and reduced the expression of TNF-α in lung after MCAO. a Wet-to-dry weight (W/D) ratio of lung in BI group and BMSCs group. b, c Blood gas analysis of the BI group and BMSCs group. PaO2 (b); PaCO2 (c). d, e mRNA expression of TNF-α in BI group and BMSCs group at 3 (d) and 7 (e) days after MCAO. f Western blot assessment of the protein expression of TNF-α in lung tissues in BI group and BMSCs group 7 days after MCAO. Semi-quantitative analysis was used to represent the total protein level of TNF-α. Data are expressed as mean ± S.D. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 compared to the BI group, n = 5 in each group
