Relative expression levels of Gasp1 RNAs in mouse tissues. A) mRNA expression levels were determined by qRT–PCR relative to the reference genes Gapdh, TfIID in extracts from 7 different mouse tissues from wild-type (grey, n = 4), surGasp1-20 (light grey, n = 4), surGasp1-06 (dark grey, n = 4) animals. The horizontal dashed line represents a twofold increase in expression level. Mean values of three separate data acquisitions per tissue sample are shown. Data are expressed as mean +/- SEM. B) Western blot analysis of GASP1 expression in surGasp1 transgenic mice: total proteins were extracted from spleen, kidney, liver, heart, pancreas, brain and some skeletal muscles dissected from 12-week-old mice. GASP1 was detected using a polyclonal goat anti-GASP1. Secondary HRP-anti-goat IgG was used for signal visualization with chemiluminescence. GAPDH was used as a loading control. The two protein bands (bottom panel) probably represent different glycosylation states of GASP1
