Comparative MOST-1 expression in human tissues, normal cell lines, and cancer cell lines

Normal tissuesMOST-1: G3PDH ratioCell linesMOST-1: G3PDH ratio
All cDNA samples were subjected to PCR with MOST-1 and G3PDH primers, and the individual ratios of the densitometric readings of their amplified products were calculated. *Samples for which no MOST-1 amplified products were visualised by agarose gel electrophoresis.
