From: Chronic high-fat diet-induced obesity decreased survival and increased hypertrophy of rats with experimental eccentric hypertrophy from chronic aortic regurgitation

Figure 3

Evaluation by real-time quantitative RT-PCR of the LV mRNA levels of genes related to LV hypertrophy (A) and extracellular matrix remodeling (B). **: p < 0.01 and ***: p < 0.001 between sham and AR groups. §: p < 0.05 vs. corresponding group on control diet. Sham (sham-operated animals) group mRNA levels were normalized to 1 and are represented as a black line on the different graphs. ANP, atrial natriuretic peptide; BNP, brain natriuretic peptide; αMHC, myosin heavy chain alpha; βMHC, myosin heavy chain beta; α/β: ratio of the two MCH forms; Col1: collagen I; Col III: collagen III; Col IV: collagen IV Fn: fibronectin.
