Table 1 Modeling differences in ACE2, TMPRSS2, BSG and FURIN expression accounting for proband age and sex

From: Expression of SARS-CoV-2 entry receptors in the respiratory tract of healthy individuals, smokers and asthmatics

gene Adjusted p-value smokers vs. non-smokers β smokers vs. non-smokers Adjusted p-value asthmatics vs. healthy β asthmatics vs. healthy
ACE2 6.80E-16 0.36 0.186 −0.074
TMPRSS2 0.00044 0.1 0.0156 0.13
BSG 0.31 −0.065 0.59 0.038
FURIN 0.31 0.047 0.29 0.048
  1. Adjusted p-values and linear regression model coefficients (β), testing hypotheses whether expression of ACE2, TMPRSS2, BSG and FURIN differ between smokers vs. non-smokers (columns 1,2) and asthmatics vs. healthy individuals (columns 3,4). The linear regression models were controlled for the linear effect of age, sex, sample type, and dataset
