  1. Genes that show greater than 2-fold expression in the dorsal spinal cord versus ventral spinal cord with P < 0.05 are listed according to their broad functional categories. The gene expression fold increase for each probeset was calculated as the ratio of means of gene expression index between dorsal and ventral spinal cord. The genes shown to be up-regulated by more than one probeset are indicated with asterisks. The fold increase for these genes is given as a range of fold increase detected by all the probesets for that gene. The genes that were tested by real-time PCR or immunohistochemistry are underlined.
