Liver Cancer: New Method Identifies Splicing Biomarkers

Different versions, or isoforms, of messenger RNAs generated by the human AFMID gene, are represented, showing their relative prevalence in cancerous (top) and non-cancerous tissue (bottom), sampled from throughout the body. Black peaks, representing the normal variant found in adult cells, are much lower in cancerous tissue than in normal tissue. The reverse is true of variants color-coded orange and red, which serve as biomarkers in liver cancer. Credit: Krainer Lab, CSHL
