Maternal Diet-Induced Obesity Compromises Oxidative Stress Status and Angiogenesis in the Porcine Placenta by Upregulating Nox2 Expression

Figure 6

Maternal high-energy feeding decreased the placental angiogenesis. The vessels in placental tissues were stained using hematoxylin-eosin (H&E) (×200 magnification, ) (a), and the arrows indicate the placental vessels. Quantitative number of vessels per unit area of placental tissues (b). The mRNA (c) and protein (d) expression levels of VEGF-A were determined by qPCR and Western blot, respectively. Values are (). Different letters indicate significant differences at . (e–g) Summarized data of VE-cadherin, VEGF-A, and p-VEGFR2.
