Identification of potential novel differentially-expressed genes and their role in invasion and migration in renal cell carcinoma

Figure 6. TIMP1 expression was associated with mesenchymal phenotype in ccRCC cell lines. Relative mRNA expression of TIMP1 (A), E-cadherin (B) and N-cadherin (C) in 2 ccRCC cell lines and a normal cell line presented separately as histograms. (D) TIMP1, E-cadherin, and N-cadherin protein levels as determined by Western blot analysis. β-actin was used as the internal control. (* p<0.05, ** p<0.01, *** p<0.001 by t-test).
