Article Title: NGS-based transcriptome profiling reveals biomarkers for companion diagnostics of the TGF-β receptor blocker galunisertib in HCC
Figure Lengend Snippet: NGS data in HLF cell line from MACE and validation by qRT-PCR. Three replicates were performed for each condition. ( a ) Clustered heat map of normalized sequence counts of the genes with the highest expression as determined by MACE. ( b ) Transcriptional response of selected potential biomarkers to both TGF- β 1 and galunisertib (gal). ( c ) Comparison of mRNA expression measurement results obtained with either qRT-PCR or MACE. For each gene, the change of expression level is calculated by fold change. ( d ) Expression of mRNA of target genes in comparison with their expression levels in control samples as measured by qRT-PCR. For each gene, the change of expression (−ΔΔCt) is calculated by – (delta Ct target–delta Ct control) and for MACE data the log 2 fold change is used)
Article Snippet: Preparation and next-generation sequencing (NGS) of MACE libraries were performed using the MACE kit (GenXPro GmbH, Frankfurt, Germany) according to the manual provided with the kit and essentially as described.
