  1. Microarray binding levels of selected 16–21-mer microarray probes from three healthy individuals and a UC sufferer during active disease and remission phases.
  2. Hybridisation intensities, converted into symbols are: no signal to 0.09, -; 0.10 to 0.99, +; 1.00 to 1.99, ++; 2.00 to 2.99, +++; 3.00 to 3.99, ++++; 4.00 to 4.99, +++++; 5.00 or greater, ++++++. Probes highlighted with a * indicate they were used for initial specificity testing.
