The SLC Family Are Candidate Diagnostic and Prognostic Biomarkers in Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma

Figure 7

The correlation between different SLC family genes and the PPI network and module analysis. (a) The correlation between different SLC family genes in ccRCC. The size of the circle and the depth of the color represent the strength of the correlation. That is, the larger the circle, the darker the color, and the greater the correlation between genes. (b) The SLC family genes were used to construct the PPI network by STRING (, high confidence equals 0.700; the max number of interactors to show were 100). Total genes were mapped by Cytoscape. The MCODE was conducted to select appropriate modules of PPI network. Green indicated the six SLC family genes, red indicated the key modules, and blue indicated other interacting proteins.
