Table 2 Number of differentially expressed gene (DEG) determined from comparison of treated groups relative to their respective PBS-treated group. Treatments were the bacterial mimic peptidoglycan (PGN) and viral mimic Poly I:C. An arrow refers to up or down expression of DEG. A value in parenthesis is an average value of DEGs
