Naked mole rat cells display more efficient excision repair than mouse cells

Figure 1. Time dependent levels of mRNA encoding NER proteins in NMR and mouse cells after UVC-light irradiation. Time of cells incubation after UVC-light irradiation is presented on the X-axis. For each gene, the level of its expression in UVC-light irradiated cells was normalized to that in untreated cells with Tubb2a, Tubb1, Polr1b, and Actb genes used for reference. Experiments were repeated at least three times; mean values ± SD are shown.
