Figure 9. Association of vascular ANGPTL2, senescence and inflammation in IMA from atherosclerotic patients undergoing coronary artery by-pass surgery. Linear correlations between (A) ANGPTL2 and p21 mRNA expression, (B) ANGPTL2 and TNF-α,IL-8 and IL-6 mRNA expression and (C) p21 and TNF-α,IL-8 and IL-6 mRNA expression in IMA segments (n=26). Non-parametric Spearman correlation test was applied. Patient’s characteristics are described in Table S2.
