Predictive Levels of CD24 in Peripheral Blood Leukocytes for the Early Detection of Colorectal Adenomas and Adenocarcinomas

Figure 1

Expression of CD24 in peripheral blood cell lysates from adenoma, CRC patients, and healthy subjects. (a) Samples (20 μg/lane) from adenoma (A), CRC (C) patients, and normal subjects (N) were subjected to SDS-PAGE and Western blotting using anti-CD24 mAb (SWA11). M depicts molecular weight markers. (b) CD24 expression levels in samples from the exploratory study as determined by densitometry (TINA 2.0). Expression levels are presented as optical density (arbitrary units) per unit area (OD/mm2). The results in the bar graph represent the median values ± S.E.
