Calcium deposition a Ca2+ deposition in VSMC derived from Gas6-/- and WT mice after 168 h (h) of exposure to phosphate and calcium-enriched cell culture medium. b TUNEL-positive VSMC of Gas6 and WT mice after exposure to phosphate and calcium-enriched cell culture medium. VSMC (Vascular Smooth Muscle Cells), WT (Wildtype); mean ± SD; *: the increase in apoptosis was significant for WT cells after 120 h and 168 h compared to 0 h (p < 0.05); ** the increase in calcification was highly significant for WT cells after 168 h compared to 0 h (p < 0.001)
