Autophagy and IL-21/IL-23 mRNA gene expression in pSS salivary glands. af Relative mRNA quantification of autophagy genes was assessed by quantitative RT-PCR in minor salivary glands samples obtained from primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS) patients and nonspecific chronic sialoadenitis (nSS). Data are expressed as mean + SEM. g, h Upregulation of IL-23p19 and IL-21 mRNA in salivary glands of pSS patients but not in nSS
