  • a RNA dot blotting (and microarray) results were obtained as outlined in Materials and Methods. Reported values are intensity obtained from experimental RNA samples divided by intensity obtained from control RNA and are the averages of three replicate samples. Microarray and blotting RNA samples were from replicate experiments.
