Treatment of HF mice with the ERβ agonist DPN is associated with increased cardiac angiogenesis in HF mice. Confocal images of LV sections immunostained for CD-31 (a), the overlay of CD-31 and WGA (b), and at higher display magnification of the white squares (c). d Quantification of capillary density as microvessels per cardiomyocyte. CTRL group was comprised of sham operated mice *P < 0.05 vs. CTRL, ^P < 0.05 vs. HF, and $P < 0.05 vs. PPT (n = 3–4 animals per group)
