From: ST3Gal.I sialyltransferase relevance in bladder cancer tissues and cell lines

Figure 1

Bladder cancer tissue has increased expression of ST3Gal.I. The relative mRNA levels of ST3Gal.I (A), ST3Gal.II (B) and ST3Gal.IV (C) genes were analyzed by Real Time RT-PCR as described in the Methods section, in bladder tumor tissue (T) and corresponding normal urothelium (U) from patients with nonmuscle-invasive (I), with invasive (II) and with non malignant bladder tumors (III). Values infer the number of mRNA molecules of a certain gene per 1000 molecules of the average of the endogenous controls (β-actin and GAPDH). ST3Gal.I expression is significantly increased in tissue of nonmuscle-invasive bladder cancer (I), compared with the corresponding urothelium (p < 0.001).
