Quantitative PCR verification of microarray results. The expression of select miRNAs was evaluated by Taqman quantitative PCR (qPCR) (a–d). The y-axis represents relative miRNA expression; the x-axis represents age of rat when euthanized. The red and blue lines represent female and male, respectively (■: PCR; □: microarray). Standard errors of the means are shown at each age except for MiR-154* (panel c) where it was undetectable in some assays. The Pearson correlation coefficient (R) is listed in the figure to show the concordance between the two methods
