  • A mixture of equal amounts of mRNAs from three normal fibroblasts was prepared in the presence or absence of IL-17A or -17F, and mRNA expression profile was evaluated using PCR array. The raw Ct was normalized using the mean value of five housekeeping genes. Fold change (1/2the raw Ct of each mRNA − Ct of housekeeping genes) is shown.
