From: The significance of Notch ligand expression in the peripheral blood of children with hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD)

Figure 2

Comparison of the expression levels of Notch ligands Dll1, Dll4, Jagged1 and Jagged2 in the peripheral blood between the uncomplicated HFMD group (n = 42) and the HFMD with encephalitis group (n = 40). The mRNA expression levels of Dll1, Dll4, Jagged1 and Jagged2 were assessed by real-time q-PCR and normalized with GAPDH as described in the Methods. Each dot represents individual case and the horizontal line represents the mean. Statistical significance was evaluated by unpaired student’s t-test with Welch’s correction.
