Table 2 Gene change comparing EA inhibitory group with control group

From: Effect of electroacupuncture stimulation at Zusanli acupoint (ST36) on gastric motility: possible through PKC and MAPK signal transduction pathways

Signal pathway Gene Sites EA/control (Fold change) EA/control (Fold up- or down-regulation)
PKC IL1R2 F09 0.24 -4.26
PKC MMP9 F11 0.21 -4.68
  1. Fold-change (2-ΔΔCt) is the normalized gene expression (2-ΔCt) in the test sample divided by the normalized gene expression (2-ΔCt) in the control sample. Fold-regulation represents the fold-change results in a biologically meaningful way. Fold-change values greater than one indicate a positive- or up-regulation, and the fold-regulation is equal to the fold-change. Fold-change values less than one indicate a negative or down-regulation, and the fold-regulation is the negative inverse of the fold-change.
