Table 2 Summary of the sense and AFAS transcripts that showed different levels of expression in cancer tissues and in normal tissues

From: Comprehensive expressional analyses of antisense transcripts in colon cancer tissues using artificial antisense probes

Sense up, AFAS down (Random) 44 (2%) 39 (8%)
  Sense down, AFAS up (Random) 5 (0%) 5 (1%)
  Sense up (dT), AFAS down (Random) 24 (1%) 17 (3%)

  1. Expression levels for "Expression level ≥ 100" and "Expression increased by" were calculated based on median expression levels among patients for each probe.
