Figure 3. The association between mRNA expression of 7 distinct BRD-containing protein genes and individual HCC cancer stages from TCGA database (UALCAN). mRNA expressions of 7 BRD-containing protein genes were significantly associated with patients’ individual cancer stages. Patients with a more advanced stage of HCC had a tendency to express higher mRNA levels. The highest mRNA expressions of BRD1/2/3/4/7/8/9 were observed in stage 3 (A–G). *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001.
