  • a The relative RNA content (total = 1) represents the average ± standard deviation from three independent biological samples. Relative nonpolysomal RNA (NP) or polysomal RNA (P) contents were calculated as NP RNA/(NP RNA + P RNA) and P RNA/(NP RNA+P RNA), respectively. The P value from each column was determined using an unpaired t test (Mann-Whitney).
