Additional file 3: Figure S2. of Tie2 as a novel key factor of microangiopathy in systemic sclerosis

Changes of the expression of angiopoietins and Tie2 in chronic hypoxia in vivo. (A) shows no effect of hypoxia on the levels of Ang-1 mRNA, whereas Ang-2 (B) and Tie2 mRNA transcripts (C) increased compared to normoxia. RNA from three mice kept in hypoxia and nine mice kept in normoxia were analysed by qRT-PCR. (TIF 371 kb)
