From: Hypoxia induces telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) gene expression in non-tumor fish tissues in vivo: the marine medaka (Oryzias melastigma) model

Figure 3

Hypoxic induction of omTERT , omHIF-1α and omEpo expressions in liver and testis of marine medaka in vivo . Male fish (n = 5) were exposed to either normoxic (6.4 mg O2 L-1) or hypoxic (1.8 mg O2 L-1) conditions for 24, 48 and 96 h. Expression of (A) omTERT, (B) omHIF-1α and (C) omEpo in the livers and testes was quantified using real-time RT-PCR and normalized with 18S rRNA. Data are presented as mean relative fold change ± SEM with respect to the gene expression level in the normoxic tissue sample at 24 h (arbitrarily set to 1). Asterisk (*) indicates significant difference from the other treatment group (p < 0.05).
