Exosomal long non-coding RNA UCA1 functions as growth inhibitor in esophageal cancer

Figure 1. Expression of UCA1 in esophageal cancer tissues. (A, B) Expressions of candidate lncRNAs in esophageal cancer tissues (Tumor) and paired normal tissues (Control) (n=15). (C) Morphology and size of exosomes derived from the plasma of patients with esophageal cancer (Tumor) or control subjects (Control). Scale bar = 200 nm. (D) Protein expressions of exosomal markers TSG101 and CD63 in exosomes derived from the plasma of patients with esophageal cancer (Tumor) or control subjects (Control). (*) denotes the difference between groups (P<0.05). Each experiment had a minimum of three replicates per treatment group.
