Skeletal Muscle Resident Progenitor Cells Coexpress Mesenchymal and Myogenic Markers and Are Not Affected by Chronic Heart Failure-Induced Dysregulations

Figure 1

The expression of genes that regulate skeletal muscle development and metabolism is altered in HF patients. (a) Results of Q-PCR screening of key regulators and markers of skeletal muscle development and metabolism. Green bars: upregulation in HF; red bars: downregulation in HF; (HD) and (HF). (b–i) Results of Q-PCR analysis of mRNA expression for genes that demonstrated significant differences in between HD and HF. (HD) and (HF).
