  1. Expressions of growth factors were tested with Student's t-test against the corresponding expression levels at the start of the experiments. Expression levels of controls, which were treated for 10 days with PMA, were normalized before testing. The values in the table represent the p-values, obtained by the t-test. The significance level was set at α = 0.004.
