Statistics of nAChR mRNA grain counts

Statistical analysis by means of one-way analysis of variance followed by Bonferroni test for multiple comparisons. GCL, F(6,49) = 31.74, p < 0.001; INL, F(6,49) = 16.49, p < 0.001; ONL, F(6,49) = 11.75; p < 0.001. For each pair of nAChR subunit mRNAs, significant differences in grain density in the different retinal layers are indicated in capital letters.
