Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Whole hearts and cardiac muscle sections. Hearts from 10 week old Destm1Cap/Destm1Cap (-/-, A) and wild type (WT, E) mice demonstrate extensive areas of degeneration and calcification throughout the myocardium of mutant mice. Sections from mutant mice (B and C) and corresponding areas in wild type (F and G) were stained with Masson's trichrome to reveal areas of interstitial fibrosis and degeneration. High magnification of cardiac myofibers taken from nonfibrotic regions of mutant myocardium (D) and wild type (H) myocardium stained with hematoxylin and eosin. Several of the fibers from the mutant myocardium appear to be disrupted and disintegrating. Bars: D and H, 5um; C and G, 10um.
