From: Progression of non-alcoholic steatosis to steatohepatitis and fibrosis parallels cumulative accumulation of danger signals that promote inflammation and liver tumors in a high fat–cholesterol–sugar diet model in mice

Figure 5

Long-term HF–HC–HSD induces hepatic fibrosis. Hepatic mRNA expression of αSMA (a), pro-collagen-1 (b), TGFβ (c), TIMP-1 (d), TIMP-3 (e), MMP2 (f), and MMP-9 (g) were measured using qPCR in male mice at each time point. Representative images of Sirius red staining to evaluate fibrosis at 27 and 49 weeks are shown (h).
