Pim-2 kinase inhibits inflammation by suppressing the mTORC1 pathway in atherosclerosis

Antiatherosclerotic role of Pim-2 in atherosclerosis. Representative images of atherosclerotic lesions stained by oil red O in the whole enfaced aorta (A) and aortic root sections (B), with semiquantitative analysis on the right (n=4 per group). (C) Representative images of Mac-2 expression by immunohistochemistry in mouse aortic root sections, with semiquantitative analysis on the right (n=4 per group). *P #P ΔP
