Figure 7

Pie Chart Quantitation Summary. The negative control vWF antibody primarily labels background structures, whereas the structural proteins collagen I and III are present primarily within the reticular fiber (RF); all three show minimal non-specific label on the outer FRC at ~1%. Fibronectin, collagen IV, and tenascin are distinctly present along the outer FRC and within the RF, with low background staining. Although the background level of laminin is considerably higher, it is nonetheless present along the outer FRC and within the RF at considerably higher amounts than the negative control vWF label.
