CDKN2A/p16INK4a expression is associated with vascular progeria in chronic kidney disease

Figure 1. Arterial expression of CDKN2A/p16INK4a in end-stage renal disease patients with vs. without cardiovascular disease (A) and coronary artery calcification (CAC) score 0 vs. >0 (B). Cardiovascular disease was defined on clinical grounds. Coronary artery calcification score were obtained through CT heart (n=47). CDKN2A=cyclin-dependent kinase 2A. RQ=relative quantity.
