Gene Expression Profiling of Placentas Affected by Pre-Eclampsia

Figure 2

The expression patterns of the sequences as determined by real-time PCR. White bars represent pre-eclampsia cases; grey bars represent controls. Each bar represents the mean (+SEM) relative expression of the individual samples in the experiment. 𝑃 -values for comparisons between cases and controls were: Fibulin (.619; FC 1.46), leptin (.012; FC 3.41), inhibin (.500; FC 1.13), tyr 3-monooxygenase/tryp 5-monooxygenase activation protein πœ€ ( 𝑃 = . 1 6 6 ; F C βˆ’ 1 . 2 7 ); Mann-Whitney test. (Pre-eclampsia cases: 𝑛 = 9 , controls: 𝑛 = 1 2 ; one control placenta was found to have a cDNA yield which was significantly lower than the other samples and it was therefore excluded from the subsequent analyses.)
