Shear stress enhances the RNA levels of ion channel genes and other relevant transporters. Note that "*" refers to a statistically significant (n = 4; p < 0.05) increase of the genes transcription in EC exposed to flow versus those grown under static conditions. Note also that the data in panel B are reported as % of the RNA level measured in EC grown under static condition ± SEM.
