Relative expression of type I interferon-inducible mRNAs in the whole blood of rheumatic disease patients. Representative heatmap visualizing the relative expression of 807 type I interferon-inducible mRNAs in whole blood from 106 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) subjects (red), 20 polymyositis (PM) subjects (green), 22 dermatomyositis (DM) subjects (blue), and 66 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) subjects (pink) compared with whole blood from 24 healthy subjects (black).
