mRNA levels of newly identified putative effectors during the developmental cycle of C. trachomatis. The mRNA levels of ct053, ct105, ct142, ct143, ct144, ct161, ct338, ct429, ct656, and ct849 were analyzed by RT-qPCR during the developmental cycle of C. trachomatis strain L2/434, at the indicated time-points. The expression values (mean ± SEM) resulted from raw RT-qPCR data (105) of each gene normalized to that of the 16 s rRNA gene and are from three independent experiments.
