Correlation between WHSC1 and EZH2 expression in ovarian clear cell carcinoma. EZH2 knockdown was found to affect WHSC1 expression and its associated transcriptional activation marker, H3K36me2. a Correlation between the mRNA expression of WHSC1 and EZH2 indicating a positive correlation (correlation coefficient = 0.4175). b OVTOKO and OVISE cells were transfected with siRNAs (siNC and siEZH2#1 or #2). Knockdown of EZH2 by siEZH2 was confirmed by qPCR. c Expression of EZH2, H3K27me3, WHSC1, H3K36me2, and β-actin in OVISE cells with EZH2 knockdown, as assessed by western blotting. d After OVISE cells were transfected with siRNAs (siNC and siWHSC1#1/#2), western blotting was performed. Knockdown of WHSC1 did not affect the expression of EZH2
