Immunofluorescence microscopy of cytochrome c oxidase (CCO). Liver tissues obtained after 6-month treatment with vehicle or metformin were stained with anti-CCO (green). The CCO staining was weak and uniform in Zucker lean rats, whereas Zucker diabetic fatty rats showed patched of strong CCO reactivity. Stronger CCO labeling was seen at the intracellular vacuoles in hepatocytes with ballooning degeneration from metformin-treated rats (ZDF + metformin-1, (ZDF + metformin-2)
