Expression of vascular-specific genes. Analysis of vascular-specific gene expression in the lung of wild-type (Sod3+/+) and Sod3 deficient (Sod3−/−) mice. Expression of genes was analyzed 28 days following silica instillation. Whole lung mRNA levels for (a) endothelin 1 (ET-1), (b) insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1), (c) platelet factor 4 (PF4), (d) platelet/endothelial cell adhesion molecule 1 (Pecam1) were determined using real-time PCR and normalized to beta-acting expression (Actin). The results are shown as mean ± SEM, *p < 0.05 when compared to control lung, One Way ANOVA with Holm-Sidak post test
