Dispersion of the relative gene expression of KL and TNF in the hippocampus of TLE(HS) patients and post mortem controls. The y-axis represents the quantitative data of the relative mRNA expression of KL and TNF. The x-axis corresponds to the two groups: post mortem controls (n = 5, circles) and TLE(HS) patients (n = 14, squares and triangles). In the control group, the unfilled circle represents the calibrator sample, whose gene expression is always 1.0. The combination of ENO2 and TBP was used as the reference gene. Mann–Whitney U tests were used for comparison between groups. TLE(HS), temporal lobe epilepsy associated with hippocampal sclerosis.
