Cardiac fibrosis is attenuated by disruption of Hsp20-PKD1 interaction. A. Picrosirius red staining of sham and MTAB hearts following treatment of mice with 10 mg/kg PKD-disruptor (PKD DIS) or scrambled control (CTR PKD) peptide twice weekly for 4 weeks. B. Histogram values represent stained area expressed as a percentage of the total area of interest. Data represents mean ± S.E.M., n ≥ 3 mice, **p <0.01, ***p < 0.001, ns p > 0.05, one-way ANOVA tests followed by post hoc Tukey’s tests.
