Alteration of Mevalonate Pathway in Proliferated Vascular Smooth Muscle from Diabetic Mice: Possible Role in High-Glucose-Induced Atherogenic Process
Aortic mRNA expressions of key enzymes using QRT-PCR. The relative expression level of each sample was calibrated by the comparative threshold cycle method, using β-actin as an endogenous control. Data are expressed as fold changes (mean ± SEM), normalized to β-actin mRNA expression. versus age-matched control mice; versus age-matched control mice.
