Atherosclerotic plaque burden. The plaque burden is expressed as area percentage covered by lipid Oil Red O staining, in female apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed diets containing different protein sources for 13 weeks. Data are mean ± SEM and were analyzed using the independent samples t-test. * denotes significant difference in atherosclerotic lesion between mice fed chicken protein (n = 12) and mice fed cod-scallop protein (n = 10)
