  • a Elevated transcripts showed a significantly different (P < 0.05) tag count between normal and tumor tissue, were expressed in both tumor tissues analyzed, and had an expression level that was higher in the tumors than in the normal tissues by the fold indicated in column one. For the purposes of calculation, 0.5 was substituted for the denominator when no tags were detected in the normal samples.

  • b Repressed transcripts showed a significantly different (P < 0.05) tag count between normal and tumor tissue, were expressed in both normal tissues analyzed, and had an expression level that was lower in the tumors than in the normal tissues by the fold indicated in column one.
