Expression of known ELN transcriptional activators and repressors in patient tissues. (A, B) Plots showing the relative mRNA levels of known ELN transcriptional activators and repressors in SD120 aorta tissue (A) and in SD120 lung tissue (B) compared to controls. The mRNA levels of three independent replicates were standardized to GAPDH mRNA levels and plotted relative to the control. Error bars represent one standard deviation. Abbreviations: NS, not significant; * = p < 0.05, ** = p < 0.01.
