Figure 3: The levels of IFN-γ and IL-4 in serum and the correlation between expression levels of Hlx and T-bet/GATA3 mRNA from gastric carcinoma sufferers. In serum of patients, the level of IFN-γ was obviously decreased ( ), but the level of IL-4 was enhanced ( ), compared with healthy control (a) and (b). The vertical coordinate indicates the T-bet/β-actine ratio (c) or GATA3/β -actine ratio (d), and horizontal coordinate indicates the Hlx/β-actine ratio. There was a significantly positive correlation between Hlx and T-bet ( , ), and a negative correlation between Hlx and GATA3 ( , ).
