  1. § values are averages compiled from at least 3 independent experiments with each Mtb strain.
  2. values are averages compiled from at least 3 independent experiments and differentially expressed macrophage genes between CDC1551 and HN878 infection that are statistically significant by both microarray and qRT-PCR are marked with an asterisk (*).
  3. Significantly differentially expressed macrophage genes involved in lipid metabolism at 24 hpi by Mtb CDC1551 or HN878. Levels of gene expression were derived from microarray and qRT-PCR experiments. Relative gene expression ratio for microarray and qRT-PCR was determined by dividing the expression values from HN878-infected BMM by that of CDC1551-infected BMM. ND- transcript not detected.
