  1. Gene expression fold-change values were grouped individually from naïve eyes and ONC eyes out to 28 days post crush (dpc). Genes were highlighted based on fold values for up-regulated (≥1.5) optic nerve datasets. The selected genes were analyzed by gene ontology (GO) based cluster identification at each time point using DAVID. Significance was determined using the Benjamini multiple test correction, GO enrichment score χ2 test and Fishers Exact test (p < 0.05).
