PPAR mRNA expression in freshly isolated human neutrophils was determined by real-time PCR for CF patients (n = 12; M/F: 7/5) and control persons (n = 12; M/F: 6/6). Data are presented as the mean PPAR mRNA level relative to the β-actin mRNA expression [(number of PPAR copies/number of β-actin copies) × 106] and the standard error. Each measurement was performed in triple. (A) PPARα mRNA expression. (B) PPARβ mRNA expression. No differences were seen between the two groups for both PPARα and PPARβ mRNA levels.
