Nephropathy in Hypertensive Animals Is Linked to M2 Macrophages and Increased Expression of the YM1/Chi3l3 Protein
Immunofluorescence images of renal tissue showed colocalization between the F4/80, a macrophage marker, and YM1, suggesting that high levels of the YM1 protein were secreted by M2 macrophages. On the other hand, there was no increase in iNOS, an M1 marker: (a) DAPI, iNOS, and F4/80 by IF; (b) 3D overlapping images of DAPI, iNOS, and F4/80 by IF; (c) panel of DAPI, YM1, and F4/80 by IF; (d) 3D overlapping images of DAPI, YM1, and F4/80 by IF.
