  1. Each value of mRNA is normalized to the expression of β-actin
  2. We used EBV mRNA from B95-8 strain as a reference
  3. EBV Epstein–Barr virus, EA early antigen, EBNA, Epstein–Barr nuclear antigen, VCA viral capsid antigen, LMP latent membrane protein, TRAbs thyrotropin receptor antibodies, SMA smooth muscle antibody, ANA antinuclear antibody
  4. * Index stands for sample absorbance/absorbance of cut-off serum
