Overexpression of LARP1 in archived HCC. (A) Representative IHC analyses of LARP1 expression in normal liver tissue (NL) and HCC specimens of different TNM stages. Statistical quantification of the average of the mean absorbance ( MOD) values of LARP1 staining between normal liver tissue (NL) and HCC specimens of different TNM stages. (B) MOD of LARP1 staining increases as HCC progresses to a higher clinical stage. (C) Gene Expression Omnibus database (GEO GSE25097) analysis showed different mRNA expression in the indicated tissues. (D) Kaplan–Meier curves with univariate analyses (log-rank) for patients with low- versus high-LARP1 expression.
