Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Hearts were fixed in formalin and paraffin sections prepared and stained with either hematoxylin and eosin (A & B) or trichrome (C-F) to highlight the interstitial fibrosis. Representative low-power views from a control heart (A) and individual binary transgenic hearts (B-D). Note the chamber dilatation (B & C) and marked variability in the extent of fibrosis (C & D) in binary hearts. Higher power views demonstrate the presence of scant residual myocytes in the most severe lesions (E & F).
