IRF-1 contributes to the pathological phenotype of VSMCs during atherogenesis by increasing CCL19 transcription


Figure 1. CCL19 expression in AS. (A) Detection of CCL19 expression in peripheral blood of patients by ELISA. n=32. (B) qRT-PCR analysis of CCL19 mRNA levels normalized to GAPDH in AS mice aorta and normal aorta tissues. n=10. (C) CCL19 protein levels in the AS or normal mice aorta tissues was performed by western blot. n=4. (D) Representative images of IHC of CCL19 in AS model mice aorta tissues and normal aorta tissues. Bar=50 μm. The effect of different concentrations (E) or different duration (F) of PDGF-BB on the expression of CCL19 was detected by qRT-PCR. n=5. *P<0.05; **P<0.01; ***P<0.001.
