Table 3 Gene change comparing EA promoting group with non-acupoint 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/Non-acupoint (Fold change) EA/Non-acupoint (Fold up- or down-regulation)
PKC COL1A1 F05 3.60 3.60
PKC IL1R2 F09 0.39 -2.54
PKC SERPINE1 G04 0.48 -2.07
  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.
