Figure 1 Developing brain homeobox 2 expression is frequently up-regulated in tumor tissues than in non-tumor tissues from patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. A: Positive developing brain homeobox 2 (Dbx2) expression in tumor tissues and negative Dbx2 expression in non-tumor tissues as revealed by immunohistochemistry (×400); B and C: Dbx2 expression was significantly upregulated in tumor tissues compared with their matched adjacent non-tumor tissues as revealed by immunohistochemistry; D and E: Relative Dbx2 expression in tumor tissues to paired non-tumor tissues; F: There was more Dbx2 expression in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells than in normal hepatic epithelial LO2 cells; G and H: Dbx2 expression was significantly related with gender and tumor size.
