Epo Is Relevant Neither for Microvascular Formation Nor for the New Formation and Maintenance of Mice Skeletal Muscle Fibres in Both Normoxia and Hypoxia
Quantitative determination of VEGF and VEGFR isoforms mRNA in the gastrocnemius muscle of wild-type (WT) and Epo-TA mice in normoxia (Nx) and following acute hypoxia for 24 hours (AHx) and chronic hypoxia for 14 days (CHx). (a) VEGF120 mRNA. (b) VEGF164 mRNA. (c) VEGF188 mRNA. (d) VEGFR1 mRNA. (e) VEGFR2 mRNA. Values are means ± SD. *, significantly different from corresponding Nx group, . #, significantly different from corresponding WT group, . &, significantly different from corresponding CHx group, .
