Figure 4: Psidium guajava (PG) ameliorates fructose induced fatty liver and hepatic expression of glucose transporter (GLUT 2). Photomicrograph (H and E, ×400) of sections of liver showing (a) normal liver and hepatocyte trabeculae in control group; (b) parenchyma with macrovesicular fatty change in fructose drinking rats (FDR) group; (c) occasional hepatocyte with fat accumulation in PG 1 group; (d) absence of any fatty change in PG 2 group; photomicrograph (×200) of immunohistochemical staining for GLUT 2 protein in liver sections of FDR (e) and PG 2 groups (f) showing abundant expression in former reduced to patchy appearance following treatment with aqueous leaf extract of PG (500 mg/kg/d)
