Table 1 Human transcripts detected in P. falciparum infected patient blood samples and in vitro cultivated 3D7 samples Comparison of expression level of the most abundant human transcripts detected in in vivo blood and in 3D7 in vitro cultivated samples. Average expression level of in vivo isolated RNA derived from the average expression level of three samples from Senegal and one from Nigeria compared with the average expression level from three 3D7 ring stage in vitro isolated RNA samples. Transcripts are listed in order of highest abundance in vivo as detected by array. Expression levels are reported as expression units (EU), using the MOID algorithm.
