The primers used to amplify the target (actin and elongation factor [EF] 2) and housekeeping genes (EF-1, S-18, and ubiquitin), and their respective efficiencies are listed in Table 1.
The expression levels of 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase type-2 (HCDH), acetyl-Coenzyme A acetyltransferase 2 (ACAT) and elongation factor Tu were down-regulated, and alpha-enolase and creatine kinase were up-regulated in the livers of ketotic cows.

Then they began experimenting with dual-phase steel and found that its properties are well-suited to their purposes: it allows for thinner walls and lower weight; it has a high elongation factor which gives better formability; and it offers a greater spread between yield strength and tensile strength, so that it will bend easily in deep draw dies without breaking.
