Epo Is Relevant Neither for Microvascular Formation Nor for the New Formation and Maintenance of Mice Skeletal Muscle Fibres in Both Normoxia and Hypoxia

Muscle cross-section of the superficial ((a) to (d)) and deep region ((e) to (h)) of the gastrocnemius muscle of wild-type (WT) and Epo-TA g h mice stained by using the monoclonal antibody antiCD31 for the detection of the microvesssel network in normoxia (Nx) and following chronic hypoxia for 14 days (CHx). Epo deficiency develops the microvessel network in mice. Bars = 50  𝜇 m.
