Levels of proteins from family 18 of glycosyl hydrolase in neutrophils of patients with type 2 diabetes and control subjects.

<p>CHIT1—chitotriosidase activity expressed in nmol/h/10<sup>6</sup> cells, AMCase—acidic mammalianchitinase activity expressed in nmol/h/10<sup>6</sup> cells, YKL-40—chitinase 3-like protein 1 concentration expressed in ng/10<sup>6</sup> cells, T2D—type 2 diabetes; Data are presented as mean values ± standard error. On the y-axis appropriate units reflecting levels of examined proteins are indicated. The level of statistical significance of differences (<i>p</i> value) observed between T2D patients and the control group was evaluated by Mann-Whitney <i>U</i> test.</p>
