Table 1 Copper transporter gene expression in rat tissues determined by quantitative PCR

From: Differential expression of ATP7A, ATP7B and CTR1 in adult rat dorsal root ganglion tissue

  Copper transporter mRNA levels (2(-DCT) × 104) in indicated tissue
  Dorsal Root Ganglion Brain Spinal Cord Liver Kidney Intestine
ATP7B 0d (0-1) 1a (0-1) 1b (0-1) 2 (1-6) 0d (0-1) 0d (0-1)
ATP7A 11 (7-44) 11 (7-84) 19 (5-289) 1c (0-9) 2 (2-84) 5a (0-43
CTR1 12 (4-323) 19 (4-38) 30 (2-81) 73 (11-275) 13 (6-243) 43 (7-353)
  1. Values represent the median and range (in parenthesis) of determinations in six animals. Symbols indicate when gene expression was undetectable in onea, twob, threec or fourd of six animals.
