Regulation of cardiomyocyte SgII expression by important hormonal and paracrine factors in HF.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
SgII mRNA levels were measured by RT-qPCR after stimulating neonatal rat cardiomyocytes for 24 h with either PBS (Ctr, n = 9), forskolin (FSK n = 5), norepinephrine (NE, n = 5), angiotensin II (AngII, n = 4), endothelin-1 (ET-1, n = 5), transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β, n = 6), or tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α, n = 6). SgII mRNA levels are presented as fold change ± SEM vs. PBS-stimulated cells. **p<0.001, *p<0.01, # p<0.05.
