Figure 4

Sample images showing different degrees of vessel muscularization in lung tissue stained with antibodies against von Willenbrand factor (blue) and smooth muscle actin (brown). Exercised animals have significantly reduced vessel wall muscularization. a) sham exposed, sedentary mice; b) sham exposed, exercise trained mice; c) cigarette smoke exposed, sedentary mice; d) cigarette smoke exposed, exercise trained mice. Scale bars 100 μm.
