Fig. 7

FT-IR microspectroscopy of a cryo-section from a SiO2-FITC-laden rat lung. Average spectra and standard deviation from hierarchical cluster analysis. Red spectrum: cluster 1; blue spectrum: cluster 2 (an offset was added to cluster 2 for better visualization); black spectrum: difference spectrum (cluster 2 - cluster 1). Dashed lines mark wavenumbers identifying lipids. Protein bands are highlighted in grey
