Figure 3 Proximal metaphysis of tibia of the green tea-GIO rats using H&E (a, b, and c) and toluidine blue (d, e, and f). (a) Showing slightly preserved architecture of trabeculae in comparison with the GIO rats. Trabeculae appear more continuous with bone marrow spaces (BM) (black star) in between (×100). (b) The bone trabeculae regaining its normal thickness with osteocytes (OC) in their lacunae within the bone trabeculae ‘black circles’ (×200). (c) Osteoprogenitor cells (OP) ‘black arrows’ and osteoblasts (Ob) ‘red arrows’ line the endosteal surface (×400). Toluidine blue-stained sections show (d) slightly preserved architecture of trabeculae in comparison with the GIO rats with marrow in between bone marrow (BM) (×200), (e) the bone trabeculae regaining its normal thickness with osteocytes (OC) in their lacunae within the bone trabeculae (×400), and (f) osteoblasts (Ob) appear rimming the endosteal surface ‘black arrows’ (×400). GIO, glucocorticoids-induced osteoporosis.
