Figure 1. Assessment of the relationship between NINJ2 SNP rs34166160 and the expression level of NINJ2 mRNA by real-time RT-PCR analysis. Total RNA samples were isolated from blood samples (lymphocytes) of 9 subjects with an AC genotype and 80 subjects with a CC genotype. Real-time PCR analysis was used to analyze the relative expression level of NINJ2. A linear regression was used to compare the differences in the mean RQ values between different genotypes (AC and CC) of SNP rs34166160.
