mRNA and protein expression of
in primary culture of human chorionic villi. ET15, 17, 18 and 20 indicate control cell cultures from elective terminations (n = 4). 06-3A, C, D and E indicate miscarriages of the female 06–1 (n = 4). (A) mRNA and (B) protein values for TIMP2 expression were normalized to the corresponding ß-actin mRNA levels. The results derived from at least three repeats of each sample and the mean level of each sample is represented in the scatter graph. The difference between the four control samples and the three CNV carrier miscarriages, as two groups, has been evaluated by student t-test (*, p < 0.05).
