The effect of BNC2 transfection in A549 cells. a Relative BNC2 mRNA expression was measured 48 h after the transfection. Human A549 cells were transfected with either BNC2 expression vector or the control (empty vector). Data represent the mean ± SEM of four transfections. Student’s t-test, **p value <0.01. b The proliferation rate of A549 cells was measured 48 h after transfection. A549 cells were transfected with either BNC2 expression vector or the control (empty vector) followed by Luminescent Cell Viability Assay. Student’s t-test, **p value <0.01. c Heatmap of the top 30 of the most differentially expressed genes from array data chosen based on fold changes. Red represents the lower and yellow the higher expression of each gene in all six samples. Data represents the quantile normalized expression values across all of the samples in heatmap. The column-side dendrogram represents the hierarchical clustering of control and BNC2-transfected samples using the complete linkage method with Euclidean distance measures. The samples were collected from two sets of transfections performed in triplicate both times. d Comparison of microarray and RT-qPCR results. Data are normalized to the control-transfected cells and are shown as a log2-transformed mRNA fold change. The RT-qPCR results represent four independent transfections with the error bar indicating SEM
