Table 1 Classification of the gene regulation expressed as ΔΔCq range

From: Immune cell counts and signaling in body fluids of cows vaccinated against Clostridium difficile

Defined grades of gene regulation ΔΔCq range
0 Non-regulated | < 1|
+ Weak | ≥ 1| up to | < 3|
++ Strong | ≥ 3| up to | < 5|
+++ Very strong | ≥ 5|
  1. The grades of gene regulation are given as follows: “0” for non-regulated, “+” for weakly regulated, “++” for strongly regulated, “+++” for very strongly regulated
