  • a M. pneumoniae S1 cells grown in DMEM were placed at 43°C for 2 h. The housekeeping gene nox was used as a normalizer. Ratios represent changes in transcript amounts (at 43°C/37°C). Intensities were determined by measuring spots in individual circles. Each value represents the average for three separate experiments. Similar transcriptional responses were observed when eno was used as a normalizer.
