Figure 2: ADAM10 was involved in the formation of murine AAA. (a) Comparison of AAA sizes with/without ADAM10 inhibitor GI254023X by naked eye; (b) the representative ultrasonic images of AAA diameter with/without GI254023X on day 14 of Ang II infusion; (c) comparison of AAA diameters with/without GI254023X by ultrasonic measurement day 14 (AngII, ; control, ; AngII + GI254023X ; p, AngII/control, 0.0000; AngII + GI254023X/control, 0.0010; AngII/AngII + GI254023X, 0.0000), Ang II group, , control group, , and AngII + GI254023X group, ; day 21 (AngII, ; control, ; AngII + GI254023X, ; p, AngII/control, 0.0000; AngII + GI254023X/control, 0.0000; AngII/AngII + GI254023X, 0.0000), Ang II group, , control group, , and AngII + GI254023X group, ; (d) comparison of blood pressure and heart rate with/without GI254023X.
