Data-type concordance for CD26 and CD56. CD immunoreactivity of prostate cells (immunoreaction product red-brown; pale blue hematoxylin nuclear counterstain) and corresponding gene expression data (darker shading of the boxes indicates higher mRNA levels). A. CD26 staining in normal prostate tissue was confined to luminal cells with a staining intensity of 0.75, this correlated well with array data summary where a maximum gene expression level of 1240 was found for luminal cells. B. CD26 staining in prostate cancer was restricted to cancer cells with a staining intensity of 0.80, this correlates with array data where a maximum gene expression level of 868 was found for the cancer cells. C. CD56 staining in normal prostate tissue was confined to stromal cells with a staining intensity of 1.00, this agreed with array data where maximum gene expression level of 136 was found for stromal cells. Original magnification: 200×.
