Cycle threshold (CT) values were calculated for BD3 and TBP (housekeeping genes) for each donor. CT values were determined in duplicate for each sample. The “A” column represents the donor. The “B” column represents the sample treatment for the donor. The “C” column represents the target mRNA measured. The “D” column represents the CT value determined for that sample.
