Histological analysis of frontal and transverse sections of injured peri-elbow soft tissues 28 DPI. H/E staining of frontal sections from a) Control ASO or b) plasminogen ASO treated animals. Gross morphology of whole limb at 1×, scale bar represents 1 mm. Zoomed in sections of the injured triceps muscle or capsule immediately adjacent to the capitulum and radial head (20× and 10× respectively, scale bar represents 100 μm). Black asterisk indicates thickening of the capsule observed in plasminogen ASO treated animals. White arrows indicate focal chondrocytic lesions indicative of heterotopic ossification formation. c Transverse sections from control ASO or plasminogen ASO treated animals, stained with H/E, MSB, immunofluorescent staining for fibrin(ogen), or immunohistochemical staining for F4/80+ cells (macrophage/monocytes). All transverse images 20× magnification, scale bar represents 100 μm
