Tumor development by HEY Oct4A knockdown cells in BALB/c nude mice. a HEY vector control, Oct4A KD1 or Oct4A KD2 cells were inoculated by ip injection into 6–8 week old female BALB/c nude mice (n = 8 group). Mice were monitored daily for tumor development before being culled, dissected and photographed at 4 weeks post injection. Arrows indicate the location of small tumor nodules. b Average tumor size debulked from mice inoculated with vector control and Oct4A KD cells. Each tumor excised was individually measured before tumour size averaged for each mouse. Data is expressed as the mean ± SEM of tumour size (cm) for each group (n = 8 mice/group). c Average weight of tumors derived from vector control and Oct4A KD1 and Oct4A KD2 mice. Data is presented as the mean ± SEM of tumor weight (grams) obtained from each mouse (n = 8 mice/group)
