Figure 1: expression of zinc fingers and homeoboxes 2 (ZHX2), nuclear factor-YA (NF-YA), and alpha-fetal protein (AFP) mRNA in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues. The target mRNA expression was detected by RT-PCR analysis. The expression of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) served as an internal control. In cases 1, 8, 15, 47, and 49, ZHX2 and NF-YA mRNAs were detected, but AFP mRNA expression was not observed. In cases 5, 12, 46, and 48, ZHX2 and NF-YA mRNAs were not detected, but AFP mRNA expression was observed.
