RNA interactions in right ventricular dysfunction induced type II cardiorenal syndrome


Figure 3. Pulmonary artery constriction induced renal dysfunction. (A) Representative pictures of the kidney in the sham and PAC groups. (B) The kidney weight to body weight ratio (KW/BW). (C) HE staining of the section around the glomerulus and their corresponding fibrosis area percentage. (D, E) Gene expression level of collagen I and collagen III in the kidney. (F) Plasma creatinine concentration in the two groups. (G) Gene expression level of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL). PAC: Pulmonary artery constriction. *P < 0.05 vs the corresponding sham group. Scale bar=1 mm for panel A and scale bar = 20 μm for panel C.
