Validation of RNA-seq results with qRT-PCR analysis. The mRNA levels of selected genes were analyzed by qRT-PCR and normalized to GAPDH. IL-6, interleukin 6; IL-8, interleukin 8; SOD1, superoxidedismutase 1; NOS2, nitric oxide synthase 2; CDX2, caudal type homeobox 2; CCN1, cellular communication network factor 1; GCLC, glutamate-cysteine ligase catalytic subunit; CALM, calmodulin. All values are expressed as means ± SEM (n = 8). a, b, c Mean values within a column with unlike superscript letters were significantly different (P < 0.05)
