Figure 1. The changes in TERT and PINX1 expression during the acute stage and convalescent phase of lung injury in rats induced by LPS. The levels of (A) TERT and (B) PINX1 in serum and (C) TERT and (D) PINX1 levels in lung tissues were determined using RT-qPCR. *P<0.05, ***P<0.001 vs. Control. TERT, telomerase reverse transcriptase; LPS, lipopolysaccharide.
