Endothelial regeneration after wire injury of the femoral artery. A: Representative in situ Evans blue staining in an uninjured vessel and vessels at 3, 5, and 14 days after vascular injury (blue staining indicates denuded endothelium) in IRKO and WT mice (magnification ×20). B: Time-dependent endothelial regeneration is shown after vascular injury (n = 5 mice per group). *P < 0.05. Data are presented as mean and SEM. (A high-quality digital representation of this figure is available in the online issue.)
