Characterization of role of HP1γ in cardiac growth. a Hematoxylin and eosin staining of heart tissue. Scale bar indicates 100 μm. b Comparison of heart growth. Heart weight and BW were measured at 8-week of age. Each data point indicates a value from individual animal. Data from male animal is in blue and female is in red. c, d Quantification of cardiac and cell cycle gene expression. Total RNA was extracted from purified ACM at 8-week. Quantitative RT-PCR was performed using specific primers. Gene expression was normalized against expression of internal control S26 and shown as relative expression value against WT control. S26 expression did not change between genotypes
