Tissue iron is negatively correlated with TERC or TERT mRNA expression: a heterochronic parabiosis study in mice

Figure 7. Correlation analysis of the relationship between the contents of tissue iron and the expression of TERC or TERT mRNA in heterochronic parabiotic mice. Correlation analysis of the content of iron and the expression of TERC or TERT mRNA in the liver (A and B), kidney (C and D) and heart (E and F) of heterochronic parabiotic mice was conducted by plotting the values for the relevant pairs against one another as described previously. Tissue iron contents were found to be negatively correlated with TERC or TERT mRNA expression in all-three organs examined.
