Caption Three month old mice were used for experiments of high fat feeding. Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc and Soat1tm1Ishi/Soat1tm1Ishi Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc mice were fed high fat diet A for 8 weeks; Ldlrtm1Her/Ldlrtm1Her and Soat1tm1Ishi/Soat1tm1Ishi Ldlrtm1Her/Ldlrtm1Her mice were fed high fat diet B for 8 weeks. Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc (A) and Ldlrtm1Her/Ldlrtm1Her (B) mice had normal epidermal and dermal structure with substantial subcutaneous adipose tissue. No foam cells were observed. In Soat1tm1Ishi/Soat1tm1Ishi Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc (C and E) and Soat1tm1Ishi/Soat1tm1Ishi Ldlrtm1Her/Ldlrtm1Her (D and F) mice, the dermal layers were extensively infiltrated with fat-laden macrophage (foam cells). Acellular necrotic areas with cholesterol clefts were present. There was a reduced number of hair follicles. Note that subcutaneous adipose tissue was not discernible. High magnification of the dermal layer of Soat1tm1Ishi/Soat1tm1Ishi Apoetm1Unc/Apoetm1Unc (E) and Soat1tm1Ishi/Soat1tm1Ishi Ldlrtm1Her/Ldlrtm1Her (F) mice is shown. Many macrophages exhibited multinucleated giant cell appearance with eosinophilic cytoplasms.
