Gene Treatment groups
Basal Basal + cortisol cAMP cAMP + cortisol
StAR 116 ± 39a 37 ± 7b 403 ± 99c 1790 ± 166d
P450scc 15 ± 7a 4 ± 1b 30 ± 7a 150 ± 28c
The data for each gene were calculated as the copy numbers of specific mRNA relative to the copy numbers of b-actin mRNA constructs, and shown as mean ± SEM, n = 6. Means within a row with different superscript letters are significantly different from one another.
