  1. Quantification (ng/μl) and absorbance 260/280 ratio of DNA isolated from the indicated tissue sources from four cadaver donors. Mean and standard deviation are reported. These results are an average of a minimum of three independent extractions. Student t-test was used to indicate significance between groups (*p ≤ 0.01 compared to 15/16F and Ϯp ≤ 0.01 compared to 15/16M)
