The heart injury induced by IR. (A) Representative mid-myocardial crosssections of TTC-stained hearts for IR. Dark blue area, nonischemic zone; red area, area at risk, AAR; white area, infracted tissue. (B) The ratio of INF/AAR. It was found that IR increased the relative INF size compared with Con group. (n = 10, *P = 0.000 < 0.05, compared with Con group). (C) LDH assay of blood serum. The activitie of LDH was increased by IR compared with Con group. (n = 10, *P = 0.000 < 0.05, compared with Con group).
