Top panels. Representative original chemiluminescent images obtained from the studied rats. The loading scheme of the cytokines is shown on the first top left image. Bottom panels. Surface plots obtained from the corresponding chemiluminescent images showing on the z axis the relative intensity of the responce; the luminance of the image is interpreted as height of the plot. In the AMI plot (untreated rat) is clearly evident the pro-Cks increase if compared with the ACE-I and Stem plot where, on the contrary, the anti-inflammatory Cks are prevalent. Plots are obtained by using Interactive 3D surface plot v2.1 by K. Barthel a specific software developed for ImageJ v1.37, a freeware image analysis package developed by W. Rasband. AMI: acute myocardial infarction.
