Respiratory response to hypoxiaRescued
  • In this table, an up arrow indicates increased amount of a particular phenotype, and a down arrow indicates a decreased amount. For example, weight was increased in NULL animals, decreased in CKO animals, and increased in Rescue animals. The phenotypes that are rescued (i.e., indistinguishable from WT) in the regional rescue experiment are listed as “rescued.” ND indicates not done.
