Description: Mouse hind limb tibialis anterior (TA) muscles were injected with BaCl2 followed by daily systemic administration of rapamycin (Rap) starting 7 days after injury. The animals were sacrificed at different days, and the injured muscles were dissected and cryosectioned followed by hematoxylin (blue) and eosin (pink to red) staining. This image shows the damage muscle tissue section one day after the injury as a control before regeneration. The muscle tissue was stained by eosin. Dark red patches were the remaining live muscle fibers and the white to pink void was the dead tissue. Nuclei (blue) were stained by hematoxylin. This image corresponds to Fig 10B from JCB 189: 1157-1169, 2010. See also CIL: 13596, 13597, 13598, 13599, and 13600.
