Figure 2: Panels show representative dot matrices for cardiac cell preparations from ischemic-reperfused hearts, subjected to either 80 or 160 cm H2O, which were positive for IL-1β, with or without reactivity for the brain natriuretic peptide (BNP; a marker of cardiomyocytes). On the other hand, bar graph shows means ± SEM (%) of Il-1β+/BNP+ and IL-1β+/BNP- cells (n=5 hearts/group). *p<0.05 compared to the other group.
