Figure 1
Figure 1 Box plots showing the expression value of 8 genes between control and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease groups. The middle line indicates the median statistic, the bottom and top of the box show the 25th and 75th percentiles, the lower and upper whiskers show the minimum and maximum values of the data after detecting outliers (circles). P values were obtained from a two-sided t test and adjusted with false discovery rate. NAFLD: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

Figure 3 Comparison of area under receiver operating characteristic curve values of miR-197, mir-146b, mir-181d and mir-99a miRNA’s in the detection of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Area under receiver operating characteristic values were 0.77 (0.60-0.88), 0.75 (0.59-0.87), 0.86 (0.72-0.95), and 0.76 (0.60-0.88), respectively, and there was no statistically significant difference between any two miRNAs (P > 0.05).
