Figure 1 Proportions of Ig classes in colon cancer cells and normal epithelial cells. A: The process of immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) gene rearrangement and the structure of rearranged IgH; B: Design of the primers for the arm-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology used to amplify the immune repertoire. During the first round of PCR, multiple forward primers Fo (forward-out) and Fi (forward-in) were used to target V genes. The reverse primers Ro (reverse-out) and Ri (reverse-in) were targeted to the 5 classes of IgH. The Fi and Ri primers included sequencing adaptors. The second round PCR was carried out with communal primers B and A. The barcodes were in between primer A and the C gene specific primers; C: Proportions of the five IgH classes in cancer and normal cells; D: The proportion of IgG in the 5 patients. Small horizontal lines indicate the mean ± SD. Statistical significance was determined by a two-tailed unpaired Student’s t-test. bP < 0.01.
