Table 6 Protein expression of total NF-AT3 and NF-AT4 in right atria with different valvular disease in different group

From: Increased expression of NF-AT3 and NF-AT4 in the atria correlates with procollagen I carboxyl terminal peptide and TGF-β1 levels in serum of patients with atrial fibrillation
