Table 3 Correlation of HERV-K (HML-2) at 1q22 to genes IL-8 and MPO that are common markers of neutrophil activity. Pearson’s correlation coefficient is used here. The correlation with IL-8 was statistically significant (p-value < 0.05) in the older individuals

From: Effect of aging on the transcriptomic changes associated with the expression of the HERV-K (HML-2) provirus at 1q22
