The expression of CBX7 in gastric cancer cell lines and gastric tumors. A) The expression of CBX7 and p16 proteins in an immortalized human normal gastric epithelial cell line GES-1 and various gastric cancer cell lines as detected by Western blot analysis. β-actin was used as a loading control. B) Examples of nuclear staining of CBX7 in normal gastric tissues and gastric cancer tissues by IHC detection: negative CBX7 expression in normal gastric tissue (upper left); negative CBX7 expression (upper right), slight positive CBX7 expression (lower left), and strong CBX7 expression (lower right) in gastric cancer tissues. Tissue sections were stained with CBX7-specific antibody and counterstained with hematoxylin as described in experimental procedures (magnification: ×400).
