  1. General abbreviation of genes selected for this study and corresponding assay ID and accession information are available on Applied Biosystems website (www.appliedbiosystems.com). 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
