  • *Indicates genes which were found significantly different using multiple comparison analysis. Fold changes for OAS2 and OASL cannot be given as no expression was detected in healthy controls.

  • CDLE, chronic discoid lupus erythematosus; OAS, 2,5-oligoadenylate synthase; qRT-PCR, quantitative real-time PCR.
