Decreased levels of HOXA4 mRNA in human AAA. HOXA4 mRNA levels in human AAA (N = 12), and control human abdominal aorta (N = 12) were assayed by Q-RT-PCR. For details on the donors, see Additional file 2, Table S2. The difference in HOXA4 mRNA levels between AAA and control samples was statistically significant (P < 0.00004).
