Tissue-specific expression of giant and alpha isoforms of nesprins.

Quantitative PCR to show mRNA expression of nesprin isoforms relative to the expression of two endogenous house-keeping controls. Charts represent the mean relative expression ± SEM, measured in cDNA preparations from 20 human tissues and 7 cell lines. These values are given in Tables S3 and S4 in File S1. Bar charts show relative expression of (A) nesprin-1-giant and nesprin-2-giant, and (B) nesprin-1-alpha-2 and nesprin-2-alpha-1.
