Smooth Muscle Specific Overexpression of p22phox Potentiates Carotid Artery Wall Thickening in Response to Injury

Figure 4

(a) Effect of apocynin treatment on wall thickness 14 days after injury in and C57BL/6J mice. *Significant increase in mean wall thickness in C57BL/6J injured arteries versus C57BL/6J noninjured arteries (). Significant increase in mean wall thickness in injured arteries versus noninjured arteries (). Significant decrease in mean wall thickness versus injured arteries from nontreated mice (). (b) Effect of apocynin treatment on the change in carotid artery cross-sectional wall area (CSWA) 14 days after injury in and C57BL/6J mice. *Significant increase in mean CSWA in injured arteries versus C57BL/6J injured arteries (). Significant decrease in CSWA versus injured arteries from nontreated mice (). Values represent mean ± SEM for a minimum of 6 animals per group.
