Table S1. Complete list of genes included in array: Complete list of genes included in array examining the impact of TNFα and glucocorticoid treatments on Wnts, Wnt inhibitors and Wnt-regulated genes. Shaded rows indicates genes where expression was significantly impacted on by either TNFα or dexamethasone (DEX). Array data have been submitted to the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) repository and given the designation GSE37520.
