Figure 6

(A) Chromatin condensation in cultured SMC derived from the rat vena cava (RatVC). Cells were treated as described in the legend to Figure 5. Summarised are the data from eight independent experiments with different batches of cells (*P<0.05 versus control, i.e. 100%; #P<0.05 versus ET-1). The inset depicts an exemplary experiment with rat aortic cultured SMC. (B) Chromatin condensation in cultured SMC derived from the rabbit carotid artery (RbCA SMC) and jugular vein (RbJV SMC), respectively. Cells were grown on laminin or fibronectin elastomers and treated in the same way as described in the legend to Figure 5. The data presented summarise four (laminin) or seven (fibronectin) independent experiments with cells derived from different animals (*P<0.05 versus stretched control, i.e. 100%; #P<0.05 versus ET-1)
