The urea-cycle-related gene expression levels in WT and Otcspf−ash mice administered DEX or NS. Quantitative RT-PCR analysis of the urea-cycle-related genes. The gene expression levels normalized to those of WT-NS and were presented as mean ± SE. p < 0.05 and p < 0.01. SLC25A13, Solute Carrier Family 25 Member 13; ASS1, arginosuccinate synthase 1; ASL, arginosuccinate lyase; ARG1, arginase 1; ORNT1, mitochondrial ornithine transporter 1; OTC, ornithine transcarbamylase; CPS1, carbamoyl-phosphate synthase 1; NAGS, N-acetylglutamate synthetase. NS; normal saline, DEX; dexamethasone
