Real-time RT-PCR analysis of integrin chain α1, α2, α3, α5, α6, αv and β1 expression profiles in wild type (wt) and α8 integrin-deficient (α8-/-) mesangial cells (A) and freshly isolated vascular smooth muscle cells (B). Results are representative for at least 3 similar experiments. Data are means ± sd. * p < 0.05 vs. wt.
