( A) The charts represent the percentage of viable CD44+/CD24− cells and cells of other immune types upon transfection with the indicated siRNA oligonucleotides relative to control (scramble siRNA). Each bar represents mean ± SD of three technical replicates from two independent experiments. 10,000 cells were analyzed by FACS for each replicate of each sample. (B) Efficiency of knockdown upon transfection with the indicated siRNA oligonucleotides and compared to control cells transfected with scramble siRNA. Cells were collected 3 days post transfection and analyzed for expression of the indicated mRNA. Each bar represents mean ± SD of three replicates. p-value *<0.05, **<0.005, ***<0.0005, unpaired t-test. Non-significant differences are shown by the symbol ‘#’ or ‘ns’.
