PTX3: A Potential Biomarker in Thyroid Associated Ophthalmopathy

Table 2

Gene expression of predicted functional partners of PTX3 in orbital adipose tissue from patients with TAO and controls. Differential expression was identified in orbital adipose tissue collected from 10 patients with TAO and 5 controls and subjected to RNA-seq analysis.

GeneDescription (TAO versus control)FDR

TNFAIP6Tumor necrosis factor, alpha-induced protein 6.
Possibly involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions during inflammation and tumorigenesis.
FCN1Ficolin (collagen/fibrinogen domain containing)

Note. Functionally related proteins were identified by experiments and text mining (
