In abdominal aortic SMC, E2 increased expression of α-/β-actin and TGF-β. a Top, Western blots on extracts from abdominal aortic SMC incubated with different concentrations of E2 for 48 h. Bottom, quantification of Western blots. b Top, Western blot for TGF-β, with quantification underneath. Data are mean ± SEM from N = 2/group with 4–6 replicates. *P < 0.05 compared to 0
