Figure 2: Levels of DUSP9 protein and mRNA in placentas from women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) or normal pregnancies. (a) Real-time RT-PCR showed the expression of DUSP9 mRNA in placental tissues of GDM group was significantly higher than that of the control group (). (b) DUSP9 protein levels in placenta tissue based on western blot. Lanes 1-4, four control women; lanes 5-9, five GDM women. Quantitation of the blot results is shown. (c) The expression of DUSP9 protein in placental tissues of the GDM group was significantly higher than that of the control group ().
