Table 6 Induction of Fluc expression in the presence of Cd

From: The Renilla luciferase gene as a reference gene for normalization of gene expression in transiently transfected cells

  Fold induction
  Fluc/Rluc ± SD (% SD) Fluc/B2M ± SD (% SD) Fluc/ActB ± SD (% SD)
pMN85 1.34 ± 0.42 1.07 ± 0.27 1.35 ± 0.28
pMN86 61.42 ± 10.12 (16%) 71.38 ± 16.24 (23%) 74.92 ± 25.80 (35%)
  1. The normalized copy number of the Cd-treated samples was compared to the normalized copy number of the untreated samples for pMN85 (PTK-Fluc) and pMN86 (MRE-PTK-Fluc) providing values for the fold induction of the Cd-directed Fluc expression for each of the reference genes (Rluc, B2M and ActB).
