Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Histological analysis of Capn3tm1Jsb/Capn3tm1Jsb mice. Hematoxylin and eosin stained transverse muscle cryosections (7um) from mice of 129/Sv genetic background. A-D: 2 month old mice; E-L: 6 month old mice. Dystrophic changes are evident in psoas (A and E), soleus (B and F), deltoid (C and G), and tibialis anterior (D and H), whereas quadriceps (I), gastrocnemius (J), and triceps (K) present a normal aspect. Diaphragm in L presents very slight abnormalities. The main features encountered are fibers with internal nuclei (B-F, and H) or area of infiltration of mononuclear cells (A and G). A cluster of small regenerating fibers can be seen in E. Bars, 50 um.
