Figure 4

Genes super-induced in CP choroidal epithelial tissue from MOG-CFA/PTX-immunized mice at days 9 and 15 p.i. Relative mRNA expression values of 93 immune-related genes were determined by immuno-LCM/TLDA in CP choroidal epithelial tissue from MOG-CFA/PTX-immunized, CFA-PTX-immunized, and naïve mice at two time-points. Those genes that were more stimulated in MOG-CFA/PTX- versus CFA-PTX-immunized mice at day 9 (Figure 4A) and day 15 p.i (Figure 4B) (compared to naïve mice) are graphed. The bar graphs depict those specific genes showing statistically significant differences in relative expression values (p values indicated by asterisks) between MOG-CFA/PTX and CFA/PTX experimental groups. RNA values are presented as mean percent expression relative to GAPDH (± SEM) in log scale. * and ** represent comparisons made between MOG-CFA/PTX and CFA-PTX- treatment groups, * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.005, Student’s t-test, n = 3 animals/group. Fold changes in gene expression normalized to naïve animals are tabulated below the corresponding graphs. Fold changes of those genes that were up-regulated after immunizations but undetectable in naïve are denoted as ‘∞’.
