Thyroid function tests of TG and NTG founder mice

These mice were shown to be positive for the transgene at the mRNA level by RNAse protection assay (see Material and Methods). (A) Total T4. (B) Free T4. (C) Total T3. (D) TSH. The data are expressed as mean ± standard error of the mean (m̄ ± SEM; n = 11 for TG and n = 31 for NTG). Statistical analysis was performed using Student’s t test. The differences are significant with confidence level of p ≤ 0.01 for A and p ≤ 0.03 for B. The differences are nonsignificant (NS) for the TSH levels between TG and NTG with the confidence level of p ≥ 0.05.
