Expression correlation between HOXD-AS1 and transcription factors. (A) Expression correlation between HOXD-AS1 (x) and E2F7, E2F8, NFYA, and TCF19 (y) in cancerous tissues of the 14 HCC patients used in global gene expression analysis. Data are depicted as probe signal value of global gene expression microarray. (B) Real-time analysis for changes of E2F7, E2F8, NFYA, and TCF19 in Huh7 cells with HOXD-AS1 knockdown. (C) Real-time PCR analysis for changes of E2F7, E2F8, NFYA, and TCF19 in SNU449 cells with HOXD-AS1 overexpression. (TIF 1665 kb)
