  1. † "Fold change," top number is the relative expression of RARβ2 transduced cells/empty vector control cells from Agilent arrays. The number in parentheses is the relative expression of the same cells from qRT-PCR analysis, normalized by respective qRT-PCR RPLP0 expression.
  2. NC = not confirmed. In all cases, these genes have known isoform(s) [with exception OR52P1, which is a pseudogene] that overlap(s) the 60-mer probes on the arrays, which could account for the discrepancy between array finding and qRT-PCR.
  3. * two qRT-PCRs (each in triplicate) of independent RNA samples
  4. §shares near identical homology to homologue on X chromosome
