Epidemiological and histological findings implicate matrix Gla protein in diastolic left ventricular dysfunction
Fluorescence, H&E, Sirius Red staining and magnified ucMGP images of panels A.d (dilated cardiomyopathy [DCM]), A.i (ischemic cardiomyopathy [ICM]) and A.f (ICM fibrotic area) taken from Fig 3.
The scale bar in A.d, A.i, A.f, H&E and Sirius Red images corresponds to 50 μm. Squares indicate areas that are magnified (scale bar 10 μm). X and Y label two magnified areas of DCM panel A.d. L indicates vessel lumen. White arrows point to ucMGP staining (red).
