Validation of microarray results by qPCR analysis. a Data are expressed as fold change with respect to the control group (experimental condition appearing as subscripts). Statistical significance (N = 6–15; Student’s t-test, P < 0.05 at the α level of 0.05) is highlighted with red (up-) or green (down-regulated) background. RR, restricted ration; NR, normal ration. b Correlation of microarray and qPCR. Comparison of changes in gene expression (represented as log2) derived from qPCR and microarray hybridizations revealed a significant correlation (Spearman’s rank test, P = 0.003 at the α level of 0.05)
