Abnormal Ribosome Biogenesis Partly Induced p53-Dependent Aortic Medial Smooth Muscle Cell Apoptosis and Oxidative Stress

Figure 5

Inhibition of RNA polymerase I by cx-5461 accelerated AD in mice. (a) Representative images of gross aortic samples are shown. (b) The life-span of each mouse was recorded. Kaplan-Meier survival curve is shown. (c) Representative staining of aorta sections with HE, Masson, and EVG. Graphs show semiquantification of elastic fibre broken grade and collagen/muscle fibre ratio. (d) Representative images of the aortas performed with TUNEL assays, IHC staining with anti-BOP1 antibody and anti-ki-67 antibody. The positive rate is shown (right panels). (e) Western blotting was performed to detect the BOP1, p53, activated caspase 3, α-SMA, and MLC expression of the aortas. Data are presented as . , , and determined by one-way ANOVA.
