Ectopic expression of MELK in oral squamous cell carcinoma and its correlation with epithelial mesenchymal transition

Increased MELK expression was associated with EMT markers in human OSCC tissues. (A) Typical images of IHC staining about N-cad, Zeb2, Snail, Twist1, Vimentin and Slug in human OSCC tissues. Scale bars:100 μm. (B–G) Correlation analysis among MELK and EMT-related proteins by Pearson’s correlation test based on the immunohistochemistry results.
