SupportingFigure1.tif278KSupporting Figure 1: Gene expression levels did not differ between HCC in viral infected and nonviral infected cirrhotic livers. A. Relative gene expression of VEGF-A, VEGFR-1, VEGFR-2, Ang-1, Ang-2, and Tie-2 in HCC and their respective adjacent tissue in cirrhotic livers without (noninfected(rpar; and with (virus infected) concomitant viral infection as analyzed by real time RT-PCR. Numbers of samples included: Non virus infected HCC in cirrhotic livers: n = 15, and their respective adjacent liver tissues: n = 14; virus infected HCC: n = 19, and their respective adjacent liver tissues: n = 9. B. VEGF-A, Ang-1 and Tie-2 protein expression determined by Western Blot and quantitated as described in Materials and Methods. Pairs of non virus infected HCC-cirrh and adjacent tissue (n = 13); pairs of virus infected HCC and adjacent tissue (n = 9). *P < .05; **P < .01 ; normal liver; solid square: tumor; open square: adjacent to tumor
