Figure 3

CD68 immunoreactivity of macrophages in coronary rupture plaques were noted (a; magnification, 20x), and strong visfatin immunoreactivity in atherosclerotic coronary rupture plaques in patients with STEMI was found (c; magnification, 20x). Absence of staining was found in the control section when the primary antibody was replaced with nonimmune antiserum (b and d).
