|Relative mRNA expression levels of NKX2-5 and HAND1 in samples from controls and patients with TOF|
|Gene||Control (RQ value (2-ΔΔCt) a: mean ± SD,n = 6)||TOF (RQ value (2-ΔΔCt): mean ± SD, n = 30)||P valueb|
|NKX2-5||9.76 ± 7.39c||1.48 ± 3.45||0.0028|
|HAND1||7.55 ± 5.62||1.20 ± 0.41||0.0032|
a The RQ values (2-ΔΔCt) for control 1 was set as 1 and used for normalization for all samples; b Mann–Whitney test was performed; c “±” represents the meaning of addition and subtraction. One male, aged 1.9 years, was not included.
