The qRT-PCR validation of the expression level of DEGs in EC compared to adjacent nontumor tissues. (a) CCT3; (b) MYBL2; (c) CDK4; (d) CENPF; (e) CDKN3; (f) CDCA3; (g) SIM2; (h) THSD4. EC: esophageal carcinoma; CON: adjacent nontumor tissues of ESCC. At least three independent experiments were performed for statistical evaluation. qRT-PCR experimental data were expressed as means ± SD. The statistical significance was evaluated using Student’s t-test and was considered as a significant difference.
