Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Histology of hearts from Tfamtm1Lrsn/Tfamtm1Lrsn Tg(Ckmm-cre)1Lrsn/0 (left) and their littermate controls (TfamloxP/TfamloxP) (right). Examples of immunoreactive cells are indicated by arrows. Trichrome stainings show no evidence for necrosis or fibrosis in mutant (A) or control (B) hearts. Double enzyme histochemical stainings for COX activity and succinate dehydrogenase activity show a mosaic loss of COX activity in mutant mouse hearts, as evidenced by the blue staining of cardiomyocytes (C), and normal COX activity in controls, as reflected by the brown staining of cardiomyocytes (D). TUNEL stainings demonstrate more TUNEL-positive cardiomyocytes in mutant hearts (E) than in control hearts (F). Immunohistochemical stainings of cleaved caspase 3 and cleaved caspase 7 show occasional positive cardiomyocytes in mutant hearts (G and I) and no staining in control hearts (H and J).
