Characterization of synovial stroma. Representative sections of synovial membranes stained with Masson's Trichrome. Magnification of the selected area is also shown. a Control healthy rabbit; b, rabbit on a high-fat diet (HFD); c osteoarthritic (OA) rabbit; d OA rabbit fed with HFD (OA-HFD); scale bar = 100 μm. e Representative western blot of collagen I (Col I) in the synovial membrane (SM) of the rabbits. EZ blue staining was used as protein loading control. f Densitometric analysis of Col I measured by western blot. Results are expressed as fold induction. Data from individual measurements and mean and 95% CI are shown (n = 10–14 SM per group)
