Table 1 TUG1 (taurine upregulated gene 1) expression and clinicopathologic factors (n = 120)

From: The long non-coding RNA TUG1 indicates a poor prognosis for colorectal cancer and promotes metastasis by affecting epithelial-mesenchymal transition

  1. Tumor high expression, the relative expression level of TUG1 is fivefold than para-carcinoma tissue. Tumor low expression, the relative expression level of TUG1 is less than fivefold than para-carcinoma tissue
  2. *Difference is statistically significant
