  1. The average correlation for all probe sets is approximately 90%, not including the correlation of the long isoform of C1QTNF3. The short isoform of C1QTNF3 had 99% correlation, indicating that the short and not the long isoform of C1QTNF3 is differentially expressed between unfused and fused sutures.
