Tissue-specific expression of giant and alpha isoforms of nesprins.

<p>Quantitative PCR to show mRNA expression of nesprin isoforms relative to the expression of two endogenous house-keeping controls. Charts represent the mean relative expression ± SEM, measured in cDNA preparations from 20 human tissues and 7 cell lines. These values are given in <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0094380#pone.0094380.s001" target="_blank">Tables S3 and S4 in File S1</a>. Bar charts show relative expression of (A) nesprin-1-giant and nesprin-2-giant, and (B) nesprin-1-alpha-2 and nesprin-2-alpha-1.</p>
