Interaction Information:

Comment RT-PCR of lithium-treated Col8a2-Q455K endothelium showed unexpected upregulation of Caspase 12, Gsk3beta, Arrbeta2, and Impa1 versus untreated Q455K-control endothelium. However, western blotting showed the expected down regulation of Impa1 and Arrbeta2 in Q455K-lithium versus untreated Q455K-control endothelium.
