Heatmap displaying the 56 probe sets with a significant effect for artery and age x artery interaction. The red and green color of the cells indicates relative transcript abundance below and above the average gene expression for that particular probe set, respectively. The columns represent the 22 samples while the rows correspond to the 56 gene IDs. The dendograms on the left and top use two-way hierarchical clustering to cluster samples and probe sets, respectively, according to similarity in change in relative transcript abundance. Specifically, a total of four and 13 distinct clusters were identified for the samples (denoted “1”,”2”,”3”, and “4”) and probe sets (denoted “A” through “M”). The description under each column denotes the animal ID from Table 2 and “B” for brachial or “F” for femoral artery.
