Expression of interferon induced with helicase domain 1 mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Total RNA was extracted from whole blood of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients and healthy controls, and the transcript levels were measured using real-time PCR. Data expressed as the ratio of interferon induced with helicase domain 1 (IFIH1) mRNA copies to those of GAPDH. Lines, median values; bars, interquartile ranges.
