Validation of the marker gene expression by quantitative RT-PCR. Expression of five marker genes (IDO1, CXCL9, CD74, HLA-DMA, CXCL11) in primary colorectal carcinomas with (always on the right side, REC = 1, n = 11) or without later metastasis (left side, REC = 0, n = 11) as determined by qRT-PCR (TaqMan). Relative amount of expression is shown in Box – Whisker - Plots. Gray columns show a 50% range of the data surrounding the median; black lines within each column mark the median; asterisks mark outliers. Differences between REC = 0 and REC = 1 groups are significant (less than 5%), except for CD74.
