Figure 1: (a) Expression of data derived from the BioGPS database showing relative HSD11B2 expression across multiple human tissues. (b) Real-time PCR showing HSD11B2 expression in the term human placenta and in JEG-3 cells using the 2-delta-Ct method (, , unpaired Student’s -test; housekeeping gene 18S). Representative photomicrographs of (c) a term human placenta and (d) JEG-3 cells immunocytochemically stained for 11β-HSD2. Scale bar = 50 μm.
