Figure 5

Gravimetric analysis of ventricle weight at necropsy. Representative images of sagittal sections of hearts from mice three weeks post sham or transverse aortic constriction (TAC) surgeries (A-H), scale bar = 1 mm. Gravimetric analysis of ventricles normalized to tibia length (VW/tibia length) in FA/FA (n = 7 sham, n = 8 TAC), FA/DE (n = 3 sham, n = 3 TAC), DE/FA (n = 5 sham, n = 5 TAC) and DE/DE (n = 5 sham, n = 4 TAC) groups (I). Effect of TAC by exposure group was also represented as a fold effect of TAC on VW/tibia length normalized to sham mice (J).
