From: HOXA1 is overexpressed in oral squamous cell carcinomas and its expression is correlated with poor prognosis

Figure 2

HOXA1 is overexpressed in OSCCs. (A) Analysis of HOXA1 and GAPDH by duplex RT-PCR on samples of healthy oral mucosa from patients without contact with the main risk factors for oral cancer and (B) on pairs of OSCC and adjacent normal-looking oral mucosa from the same patient. (C) Densitometric analysis of the HOXA1 bands demonstrated a significant higher expression in OSCCs compared to healthy oral mucosas from patients without recognized OSCC-risk factors (p < 0.001).
