Table 2 mRNA levels for genes related myogenesis, chondrogenesis, and osteogenesis in NTC- and BMP-2 siRNA-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
