Laser Doppler blood flow analysis of WT and LOX-1 KO mice.
A: Representative images of LDBF just before and day 28 after surgery revealed hindlimb blood flow of the ischemic (R: right)/nonischemic (L: left) conditions in a supine position. B: Ischemic/nonischemic hindlimb blood flow ratio (mean±SD) were measured before (Pre), and on days 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 after right femoral artery ligation. Results are expressed as the ratio of the ischemic hindlimb to nonischemic limb perfusion. ★, P<0.05 vs. WT; ★★, P<0.01 vs. WT; #, P<0.01 vs. Pre (before surgery), n = 25.
