Table 7 Quantitative RT-PCR analyses of AluS expression levels in the LCLs of ASD and control groups

From: Integrated genome-wide Alu methylation and transcriptome profiling analyses reveal novel epigenetic regulatory networks associated with autism spectrum disorder

Group Fold change (FC) Log2 (FC) P value
ASD vs. control 1.75 0.81 0.316
Subgroup M vs. control 1.05 0.06 0.953
Subgroup L vs. control 0.29 − 1.77 0.032
Subgroup S vs. control 3.68 1.88 0.038
  1. The levels of Alu transcripts were normalized to the housekeeping gene GAPDH. The AluS expression levels were calculated using the 2−ΔΔCt method, and differences with a P value < 0.05, as determined by two-tailed t tests with Benjamini-Hochberg correction, were considered significant
