CXCL1 mRNA expression in human bladder cancer from publically available datasets. Three public datasets containing transcriptome profiles of bladder tumor tissues were obtained and analyzed for CXCL1 expression using Oncomine 3.0. Mean relative mRNA levels for CXCL1 in muscle invasive bladder cancer cases was significantly elevated compared to non-muscle invasive bladder cancer cases (Sanchez-Carbayo et al., p = 1.72-6, Dyrskjot et al. p = 3.77-6, and Lee et al., p = 1.12-4).
