Figure 2 HHLA2 mRNA and protein are significantly upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma tissues. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissue, para-carcinoma tissue, and normal liver tissue were analyzed from patients in our retrospective cohort. (A) HHLA2 mRNA expression was significantly higher in the HCC tissues than in the para-carcinoma tissues and normal liver tissues (both *** P<0.001). (B) Respective cases by western blot showing HHLA2 protein levels in paired samples of HCC tissues (C43–C46), para-carcinoma tissues (P43–P46), and normal liver tissues (N1–N8).
