Cutaneous wound healing in aged, high fat diet-induced obese female or male C57BL/6 mice

Figure 6. Tgfβ-1 and Tgfβ-3 expression during skin wound healing. qRT-PCR mRNA expression of Tgfβ-1 (A) and Tgfβ-3 (C) in uninjured and post-injured skin tissues collected from female, male, young, old, fed LFD or HFD mice (n=4-8 skin samples per group). Representative Western blot analysis of Tgfβ-1 (B) and Tgfβ-3 (D) protein expression at post-wounded day 3 (B, D) and day 7 (D). The bars indicate lsmean ±SE *p<0.05, **p<0.01, ***p<0.001.
