Figure 3: BLVRB Is Up-Regulated in Patients With Symptomatic Carotid Atherosclerosis

Stratification of patients based on clinical symptoms of atherosclerosis showed that BLVRB mRNA (A) and protein (B) expression was induced in comparison between symptomatic (S) and asymptomatic (AS) patients in plaques by microarrays, qPCR, and LC-MS/MS, as well as in local plasma by antibody bead arrays using both human protein atlas antibodies targeting BLVRB (HPA041937 and HPA041698) (C). Abbreviations as in Figures 1 and 2.
