Nephropathy in Hypertensive Animals Is Linked to M2 Macrophages and Increased Expression of the YM1/Chi3l3 Protein
High levels of F4/80 in the hypertensive group indicate the presence of macrophages, and the YM1 marker shows the predominance for the M2 phenotype. There was no increase in iNOS, an M1 phenotype marker: (a) renal levels of F4/80 by IF; (b) renal levels of YM1 by IF; (c) renal levels of iNOS by IF. Values were expressed as the . compared to the control group with the -test. Seven sections/animal/groups. Four mice for each group.
