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.
