Figure S8 - quantitative PCR using genomic DNA for the copy number abundance of SAT family repeat sequences (ALR, ALR_ and ALRb). (a-c) Quantification of copy number abundance for ALR (a), ALR_ (b) and ALRb (c) repeat elements was performed for EsCM and CTRL LV samples (EsCM A to H and CTRL 1 to 16), and normalized to the copy number for a control genomic locus (promoter region of OXT). A similar result was obtained when normalized to a second control genome locus (promoter region of GAPDH). The significance of difference between the two groups was computed using unpaired Wilcoxon rank-sum test, and a significance of P < 0.05 was detected only for ALRb.
