Band densities were measured by Fuji (Stamford, CT) Bas 2000 phosphorimager. The mof male vs. normal male and mof/ + female vs. normal female ratios are means of triplicate ratios obtained from phosphorimager data from multiple Northern blots. The band density values were adjusted for rRNA levels which acts as a control for loading differences.

  • a Ratios significantly different from a value of 1.0 at the 95% confidence level.

  • b For white, mof male vs. mof/ + female ratios are used because of the presence of wa.

  • c Ratios significantly different between male and female atthe 95% confidence level.
