From: High-salt in addition to high-fat diet may enhance inflammation and fibrosis in liver steatosis induced by oxidative stress and dyslipidemia in mice

Figure 2

Evaluation of fibrosis and inflammation in the liver of mice with different dietary treatments. a, Serum hyaluronic acid levels. (n = 6-14/group) b, Fibronectin protein levels in the whole liver (n = 4/group). c, Histological analysis of fibrotic changes. Representative fibrilar collagen deposition in the liver, which was evaluated using Masson’s trichrome staining. Fibrotic changes are indicated by blue arrowheads and typical hepatocyte ballooning are indicated by green arrowheads (original magnification, X100, X400). d, Histological analysis of inflammatory changes. Representative F4/80 immunohistochemical stainning (original magnification, X400). e, Histological analysis of inflammatory changes. Representative TNF-α immunohistochemical stainning (original magnification, X400). See abbreviations in the legends of Figure 1. #P < 0.05 compared with mice fed ND. Values are means ± SEM.
