Table 1 mRNA levels for genes related to myogenesis, chondrogenesis, and osteogenesis in vehicle- and BMP-2-treated tongues

From: Bone morphogenetic protein-2 functions as a negative regulator in the differentiation of myoblasts, but not as an inducer for the formations of cartilage and bone in mouse embryonic tongue

  1. The mean ± standard deviation of six vehicle-treated or six BMP-2-treated tongues for each gene is shown. The ratio of each target gene mRNA relative to GAPDH mRNA is shown.
