Table 3: Differential expression of genes related to the extracellular matrix in primary lung fibroblasts from young and old mice. Only genes that were significantly different between old and young cells are shown.

Fold-difference in expression in old fibroblasts relative to the expression in young fibroblasts is shown for all genes with a significant difference. Those exceeding the cut-off threshold of 2-fold are shown in bold.
