Figure 1
Figure 1 Differential expression of microRNAs in rectal cancer. The differentially expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) in rectal cancer compared to normal rectal tissue are listed, sorted by studies, respectively. The correlating circles show the number of differentially expressed miRNAs in the mentioned studies and point out the number of miRNAs overlapping between those studies.
Figure 2
Figure 2 Differential expression of miRNAs dependent on response to preoperative chemoradiotherapy. miRNAs in up arrow callouts are significantly higher expressed; those in down arrow callouts are significantly lower expressed. On the left site there are miRNAs, isolated from pretherapeutic biopsies, which are supposed to predict response or non-response, respectively. The miRNAs in the bottom localized on the right side, are found to be significantly higher or lower expressed in post-therapeutic tumor biopsies of non-responders after chemoradiotherapy compared to pretherapeutic biopsies. 1Lopes-Ramos et al[69], 2014; 2Hotchi et al[68], 2013; 3Della Vittoria Scarpati et al[66], 2012; 4Bhangu et al[70], 2014; 5Svoboda et al[64], 2012; 6Svoboda et al[63], 2008; 7Drebber et al[65], 2011.
