Ioblastoma in general. In conclusion, the orthotopic glioblastoma xenograft model recapitulates not only the invasive phenotype, but also the regional expression profile reported in human samples of glioblastoma multiforme. The value of the model (i.e., abundant tissue, high-quality RNA, andToussaint et al. Molecular Cancer 2012, 11:32 http://www.molecular-cancer.com/content/11/1/Page 10 ofFigure

The genes meeting this ideal profile were ranked by pvalue (between core and edge).ImmunohistochemistryRaw data from chip hybridization experiments were normalized across chips and across probesets using a fast linear Loess routine [29], known as Fastlo. This normalization routine, in some re

Cal significance.Paraffin sections of our patient-derived glioblastoma xenografts (15 of 22 lines) were stained for galectin-1 expression. Around half of the xenografts tested showed preferential staining at the tumor-brain interface (Figure 3). A few tumors stained in their entirety, and another subset lacked significant staining. The 2 to 4 fold change in galectin-1 mRNA expression at the tumor
