MALAT1/miR-15b-5p/MAPK1 mediates endothelial progenitor cells autophagy and affects coronary atherosclerotic heart disease via mTOR signaling pathway

Figure 10. En face analysis of thoracoabdominal aorta and cross-sections of the root of aorta. The atherosclerotic lesions throughout the aorta in ApoE−/− mice were lessened in the antagoMALAT1 group and the plaque area in ApoE−/− +HFD group was larger than that in ApoE−/− +RCD group. **P<0.01, compared with antagoNC group. ##P<0.01, compared with ApoE−/− + RCD group.
