Designing high affinity target-binding peptides to HLA-E: a key membrane antigen of multiple myeloma

Figure 2. Higher expression of HLA-E mRNA in CD138 positive myeloma cells than normal plasma cells detected with real-time qPCR. The expression of HLA-E mRNA in normal plasma cells and MM cells were 0.048 ± 0.018 and 0.188 ± 0.032, respectively (P < 0.05).
