Expression of Fibulin-5 in HCC. A) Representative Western blot analysis of Fibulin-5 expression in the HCC (T) and matched adjacent nontumor tissues (NT) was shown. Quantification of the data revealed that Fibulin-5 protein expression level in the cancer tissues was significantly lower than that in the noncancerous tissues. n = 86; *P < 0.05 by t test. B) Comparing differences in the expression levels of Fibulin-5 between HCC cell lines with different metastatic potentials and the immortalized hepatic cell line LO2. n = three repeats with similar results; *P < 0.05 by ANOVA.
