Credible Intervals for Fluc expression in the presence of Cd

95% Credible intervals for fold induction

Fluc/Rluc

Fluc/B2M

Fluc/ActB


Mean fold induction

(53.11,77.52)

(58.92, 106.48)

(59.98, 121.00)

Standard deviation

(9.19, 34.85)

(16.30, 74.62)

(18.60, 105.60)


The data were modelled using a lognormal distribution and uninformative priors. Random samples from the posterior were drawn and 95% credible intervals were calculated for both the mean fold induction and standard deviation.
