Measurement of individual cardiomyocyte hypertrophy. Representative images (40X objective) of sagittal sections of left ventricle free wall from mice three weeks post sham or transverse aortic constriction (TAC) surgeries (A-H), scale bar = 50 μm. Individual cardiomyocyte areas were traced, quantified, and analyzed in FA/FA (n = 5 sham, n = 5 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).
