Figure 2: qPCR results across the 18 paired melanocyte sample groups for each of the five validated genes of the GO-based statistical analysis. Expression was calculated by taking the ratio between DNMC and the corresponding MC per patient sample set. RPS11 served as reference gene in qPCR experiments performed in duplicate. Values <1: gene expression is lower in DNMCs when compared to normal skin-derived melanocytes.
