Telomere length of EC and VSMC from patients with AAA measured using Q-FISH and immunofluorescence.
<p><b>A</b>) Aortic aneurysmatic wall derived EC stained with anti-CD31 mAb (green). The inset shows the nuclei analyzed by Q-FISH. <b>B</b>) EC interphase nuclei hybridized with Cy3-PNA telomeric probe (red signals). <b>C</b>) Aortic aneurysmatic wall derived VSMC stained with anti-α-smooth muscle actin mAb (green). <b>D</b>) VSMC nuclei hybridized with Cy3-PNA telomeric probe (red signals). DAPI was used to label nuclei.</p
