Table 3 Maximum aortic diameters of mice exposed to saline or angiotensin II that did or did not develop macroscopic aneurysms used in the microarray experiment (study 2).

From: Whole genome expression analysis within the angiotensin II-apolipoprotein E deficient mouse model of abdominal aortic aneurysm
