Obesity Induces Artery-Specific Alterations: Evaluation of Vascular Function and Inflammatory and Smooth Muscle Phenotypic Markers
Collagen content in arteries of obese mice. Representative photomicrographs of small mesenteric artery (a) (×40 objective, scale bar represents 50 μm) and thoracic aorta (b) (×10 objective, scale bar represents 100 μm) sections stained with picrosirius of control and obese mice. Collagen content in the media and adventitia layer and type III collagen mRNA in small mesenteric artery (c and d) and thoracic aorta (e and f) from control and obese mice. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM. Unpaired -test: versus control mice. .
