Table 1 Proportion of vascular-specific evidence statements for the V-IPN subnetworks

From: A vascular biology network model focused on inflammatory processes to investigate atherogenesis and plaque instability

Subnetwork Total edges Edges >1 evidence annotated with vascular context Vascular edges/Total (%)
Endothelial Cell Activation 407 238 58
Smooth Muscle Cell Activation 179 78 44
Plaque Destabilization 494 144 29
Endothelial Cell – Monocyte Interaction 112 27 24
Foam Cell Formation 285 27 9
Platelet Activation 179 10 6
  1. As causal evidence from platelets and inflammatory cells increase in a given subnetwork (e.g. Foam Cell Formation, Platelet Activation), the number of vascular biology-related evidence decreases.
