LDLRAD2 overexpression predicts poor prognosis and promotes metastasis by activating Wnt/β-catenin/EMT signaling cascade in gastric cancer


Figure 1. High LDLRAD2 expression correlates with poor prognosis and unfavorable clinical features in GC patients. Bioinformatics analysis showed that LDLRAD2 mRNA expression was significantly higher in GC samples compared with normal samples (A). High LDLRAD2 expression was closely correlated with short overall survival (B) and disease-free survival (C). Immunohistochemical staining showed that LDLRAD2 expression was higher in GC samples than normal control (D). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis of 180 patients from our clinical center suggested that patients with high LDLRAD2 expression had a decreased overall survival (E). Western blotting analysis further confirmed that LDLRAD2 expression is upregulated in human GC (F) and GC cell lines (G). Three independent experiments were performed. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001.
