Levels of proteins from family 18 of glycosyl hydrolase in neutrophils of patients with type 2 diabetes in tertiles of increasing activity of leukocyte elastase.

<p>CHIT1—chitotriosidase activity expressed in nmol/h/10<sup>6</sup> cells, AMCase—acidic mammalian chitinase 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,T1-T3—subgroups of patients divided according to tertiles of increasing activity of leukocyte elastase in neutrophils (for details see <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0141730#sec006" target="_blank">Material and methods</a> section). On the y-axis appropriate units reflecting levels of examined proteins are indicated.</p>
