qRT-PCR analysis of gene expression: P43 Nfia-/- versus P43 Nfia+/+. Shown are the findings of quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) analysis of gene expression in postnatal day (P)43 Nfia-/- mice relative to P43 Nfia+/+ littermates, in comparison with the respective values for P16 animals. The mean fold changes of mRNA expression in Nfia-/- relative to Nfia+/+ mice are given on the y-axis. Numbers of independent samples: n = 4 for analysis of P43 Nfia-/-; n = 2 for P43 Nfia+/+; n = 8 for P16 Nfia-/-; and n = 6 for P16 Nfia+/+. Adjacent bars show the P16 and P43 results for the respective gene.
