Galectin-1-mediated high NCAPG expression correlates with poor prognosis in gastric cancer


Figure 1. Gal1 and NCAPG expression predict prognosis of gastric cancer (GC). (A, B) Expression of Gal1 and NCAPG proteins detected by Western blotting in GC cancer tissues (GCTs) and non-gastric cancer tissues (NGCTs). (C, D) Representative immunohistochemistry images for Gal1 and NCAPG in (C) GC tissues, and (D) matched non-cancerous tissues. (E) Immunoreactivity score (IRS) for Gal1 compared between GCTs and matched NGCTs. (F) IRS for NCAPG compared between GCTs and matched NGCTs. (G) The expression of Gal1 was positively correlated with NCAPG expression in GC tissues. Abbreviations: T: tumor tissue; N: non-tumor tissue; GCTs: gastric cancer tissues; NGCTs: non- gastric cancer tissues. **P < 0.01.
