Table 5 Quantitative PCR results for different HTR2C primers by breed background

From: Gene structure and expression of serotonin receptor HTR2Cin hypothalamic samples from infanticidal and control sows

  Relative quantity HTR2CL Relative quantity HTR2CS
I (n = 9) 26.98 ± 3.66 51.53 ± 4.40
C(n = 9) 24.71 ± 3.21 44.03 ± 3.95
LW I (n = 4) 32.77 ± 3.10 54.37 ± 7.60
LW C (n = 4) 29.37 ± 3.70 51.92 ± 6.00
HxLW I (n = 4) 20.24 ± 2.30 45.41 ± 5.80
HxLW C (n = 4) 18.53 ± 1.0 38.30 ± 3.30
  1. Quantitative PCR was carried out using primer pairs HTR2CL (specific for the long isoform) and primer pair HTR2CS (both isoforms) using PSMD2 primer pairs as a control described in Quilter et al. 2008. Results from all pairs (n = 9) and from Large White pairs (n = 4) or Hampshire x Large White pairs (n = 4) in Table 5 are given as the mean ± SEM. No statistically significant differences were observed between the infanticidal and control groups within breed, but the LW results were statistically different from the HxLW results (p = 0.001) for the expression of the long isoform
