Color-coded scatter plots in human and mouse of the 18 samples for Slug expression The expression of the EMT inducing transcription factor Slug (SNAI2) is shown in terms of the expression of the main signature genes COL11A1 and THBS2. A, demonstration that this co-expression is present in the xenografted human cells. B, demonstration that this co-expression is absent in the peritumoral mouse cells. C, Bar diagram indicating that other EMT inducing transcription factors are not co-expressed.
