Figure 7: Transcript levels of mitochondrial genes are increased after treatment with high LDL for 7 days. Human primary endothelial cells were cultured in standard medium (con) or medium containing 1 mg/ml LDL (high LDL) for 7 days. Semiquantitative real-time PCRs were performed for MT-ND2 (a), MT-CYB (b), MT-CO3 (c), and MT-RNR1 (d) using RPL32 as reference. Data are ; ; vs. con.
