Table 9 Correlation of TERT mRNA level with Hif1a and Epas1 mRNA levels and telomere length in heart and lung tissues

From: Telomere elongation protects heart and lung tissue cells from fatal damage in rats exposed to severe hypoxia

   Hif1a mRNA level Epas1 mRNA level Telomere length
TERT of heart tissue r 0.913 0.283 0.843
