Between the femoral artery ligation group and the sham group, 783 genes showed a differential expression where 518 were induced and 265 were repressed. Interestingly, a number of angiogenesisrelated genes such as MCP-1, placental growth factor, and cysteine-rich protein61, were differentially up-regulated in the femoral artery ligation group as compared to the sham group. Also, a significant up-regulation was found in genes thought to exert angiostatic activities, including interferon gamma, inducible protein-10, and matrix metalloproteinase-12 in the ligated group.
