Figure 2: Treatment With Fstl1 Decreases Cardiac Myocyte Hypertrophy Induced By Aldosterone in Adult Rat Ventricular Myocytes

(A)3H-Leucine incorporation and (B) atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) mRNA expression in adult rat ventricular myocytes after 30-min pre-treatment with 100 ng/ml recombinant human Fstl1 protein (rFstl1) and 18-h treatment with 1 μmol/l aldosterone (Aldo). n = 6 to 12 samples/group. Data are mean ± SEM. Statistical analysis by Kruskal-Wallis test followed by Dunn test. Abbreviations as in Figure 1.
