Fig. 3. Effects of ascorbic acid on mast cells and CD68-positive cells in livers of obese OVX female mice.
Mice (n=5/group) were fed an LFD, an HFD, or an HFD-AA for 18 weeks. (A) Liver sections were stained with toluidine blue. Dark arrows indicate mast cells (original magnification ×400). (B) Relative mast cell number. (C) CD68-positive macrophages are shown in brown color (original magnification ×100). (D) Relative CD68-positive area. All values are expressed as mean ± SD. #P<0.05 compared with LFD. *P<0.05 compared with HFD.
