Quantitative expression profile of ACE2; ACE; ANF and AT1 in control; IDC and ICM human left ventricular myocardium. ACE2; ACE; ANF and AT1 mRNA copy number in human left ventricular myocardium classified as Control (non-diseased) (n = 9); IDC-idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (n = 11); ICM-ischemic cardiomyopathy (n = 12). Corresponding levels of the housekeeping gene GAPDH are also shown. Each bar represents the geometric mean mRNA copy number with 95 % CI on a log scale. * – P < 0.05 Vs. Control.
