Gene expression profiling of human intestinal epithelial cells: analysis by laser microdissection of formalin fixed tissues-5

Us epithelium of three ileal tissue samples. The mRNA levels of Reg3A were similar to the high levels measured for alpha-defensins, supporting a potentially important and orchestrated role for these proteins in innate defense responses in the human ileum. Fold differences in expression between the crypt and villus epithelial regions are show for 3 independent patient samples (P1, P2, and P3). Statistical validation of the fold-differences in mRNA levels was determined by student t-test (value ≤ 0.05).
