Tissue sections stained for H&E, α
, and lectin. (A) An example of histological and immunohistochemical staining for anterior tibialis muscle sections for a wild-type non-diabetic mouse. (B) The bar graph for quantitative lectin staining. Each bar represents average ± SD of lectin-stained capillaries from sections of left anterior tibialis (ischemic limb) (light gray bars) and right anterior tibialis muscle (sham surgery) (dark gray bars) for animals from each of the four groups.
