Figure 3: Relative expression of genes identified from the SSH library, MYD88 isoforms- and autophagy-related genes in esophageal cancer tissues, assessed using real-time PCR. (a) Relative expression levels of genes that are overexpressed in esophageal tumor (FOXO3, GAPDH, and MYD88 variants). Expression of MYD88v4 was not detectable in samples. (b) Detection of autophagy in esophageal tumors. Relative expression of autophagy-related genes (Beclin1, ATG12, Gabarapl1, LC3, and PIK3C3) in esophageal tumor tissues. (●) represent the mean and whiskers the SEM of expression in samples ( ). , .
