  1. + and − indicates whether marker mRNA transcript levels are higher or lower in the tumour tissue compared to the matched no-tumour tissue. *Represents significant changes (p < 0.05)
  2. −: 1–twofold change lower compared to normal; − −: 2–tenfold change lower compared to normal; − − −: > tenfold change lower compared to normal; +: 1–twofold change higher relative to normal; + +: 2–tenfold change higher relative to normal; + + +: > tenfold change relative to normal; =: similar in tumour and non-tumour
