  1. General abbreviation of genes selected for this study and corresponding assay ID and accession information are available on Applied Biosystems website ( Assay ID refers to the “Applied Biosystems Gene Expression Assays” inventoried kit with proprietary primer and TaqMan® probe mix. Assay ID with “Rn” prefix denotes “Rattus norvegicus”. All gene expression assay kits used were FAM/MGB probed. Eukaryotic 18S rRNA was used as the endogenous control
