Figure 2. Pathohistological analysis and morphology of hepatocytes based on Oil red stained liver sections of experimental mice. (A) The results of Oil red O staining were showed. The lipid droplets were shown as light red in Oil red stainings (green triangle), and all tissues were also stained by hematoxylin in order to remark the cell nucleus. All the pictures of Oil red stainings were shown in an amplification factor of 400X (the scale is 20 μm). (B) The quantitative results of lipid-droplet densities via ImageJ. The means of total area and SEM were showed below the bar chart. The bars are given as means±SEM (n=6). Data points without the common letter (a-c) indicate significant differences (p<0.05). (C) The prevalence table indicated the quantitative results of microscopic examination, the scores were given according to the density of lipid droplets
