  1. aRelative transcription, % of the corresponding housekeeping gene transcript level. To specifically amplify each individual chimeric element, a combination of primers q1+q2 was used (See Figure 3). Primer q1 is specifically designed to the WEIRD-MGL junction site of the desired MINE element. All quantitative RT-PCR experiments were performed in quadruplicate. Relative transcription values were calculated as described on the legend to the table 1.
