Principal components analysis (PCA) discriminating renal transplant patients with delayed graft function (DGF) from early graft function (EGF) at the time of transplantation (T0) (A) and 24 hours after transplantation (T24) (B) using the expression level of the genes included in the NLS-bearing substrate import into nucleus pathway. Both PCA plots were built using the expression level of all 13 genes included in the NLS-bearing substrate import into nucleus pathway. Red dots indicate patients that developed DGF after transplantation and green dots those with EGF. PCA clearly discriminated in three dimensional space the two study groups at both time points.
