Gene expression profiles of circulating monocytes from patients with systemic sclerosis and from healthy controls. Two sets of genes, each set containing RNA from five subjects, were analyzed (RNA pool #1 and #2) with the Oligo GEArray® (SABiosciences, Frederic, MA, USA). The results for eight candidate genes for genes preferentially overexpressed in systemic sclerosis (SSc) monocytes are shown along with control (glycelaldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH)).
