Increased collagen fibers density in the lung and skin and increase expression of endothelial markers of vascular injury in mice following the immunization with Col V. Quantification of collagen I (Col I), collagen III (Col III), and collagen V (Col V) and endothelial markers in the lung (a) and Col I, Col III, and Col V in the skin (b) by Image Pro-Plus of mice immunized with Col V. The quantification of the Picrosirius staining showed collagen fine fibers increase in Col V-immunized mice compared with control. Data are mean ± s.e. (n = 38) P < 0.05
