  1. Shown are genes which were significantly up-regulated (2-fold, uncorrected p value < 0.05 calculated with unpaired t-test) within the aortas of mice with AAAs by comparison to both mice that received angiotensin II and did not develop AAAs and also saline control mice. Genes were selected from the full list of differentially expressed genes (shown in Additional Files 3 and 4) based on their upregulation in both comparisons, likely functional importance and previous association with human AAA. Transcripts associated with no recognised gene are not included. Genes highlighted with † have previously been identified as associated with human AAA in a whole genome expression study or other human AAA studies [9, 10]. Genes highlighted in bold were selected for validation by real time PCR (see Table 6). Cf: compared to; ns: not significant
