  1. Differentially expressed genes in fibroblasts of bleomycin-injured lungs at day 12 (B fibroblasts) relative to fibroblasts of saline-treated lungs (S fibroblasts), myofibroblasts of bleomycin-injured lungs at day 12 relative to S fibroblasts, and myofibroblasts relative to B fibroblasts by a factor of > 2.0 or < 0.5 and P < 0.05. QRT-PCR was performed in triplicate using three independently prepared RNA samples. Results represent the mean of three experiments.
