Table 2 The miRNA-21, PTEN and α-SMA expressions in the BA patients and control liver

From: microRNA-21 expressions impact on liver fibrosis in biliary atresia patients

  Biliary atresia (ΔCT ± SD) Control (ΔCT ± SD) ΔΔCT (95% CI) Fold change (2−ΔΔCT) p-value
miRNA-21 − 4.4 ± 4.0 − 0.2 ± 4.8 − 4.2 [− 8.2 to − 0.2] 18 0.041*
PTEN 0.2 ± 1.4 − 1.4 ± 1.7 1.6 (0.2 to 3.0) 3.1 0.036*
α-SMA 13.7 ± 3.8 15.0 ± 4.8 –1.4 (− 5.3 to 2.5) 2.6 0.87
  1. * Mann–Whitney U test is used to search for statistical differences between groups and p < 0.05 is considered statistically significant
