The samples were then separated on 5% SDS-PAGE gel with a 3% stacking gel for 220 min at 80 V and then transferred to the nitrocellulose membrane to determine MKI67 expression, as a marker for cell proliferation.
Lysates of Hella cells were used as the positive control for MKI67.
Analysis of MKI67 gene expression was performed using SYBR green (Takara BIO, Inc.
Two specific primer pairs for MKI67 and Tbp genes were designed using primer 3 software program.
MKI67 mRNA expression was analyzed using one-way ANOVA.
However, it seems that SIE may induce MKI67 mRNA expression and thereby cell proliferation (Figure 4).
We next measured survivin and MKI67 mRNA expression in the 57 bladder washings.
We investigated the correlation between survivin and MKI67 mRNA expression in the bladder washings with tumor stage and grade of the corresponding tissue, using the Mann-Whitney U-test (for stage) and the Kruskal-Wallis test (for grade).
Despite the lack of a correlation with recurrence, we observed a correlation of survivin and MKI67 mRNA expression with the pathologic variables tumor stage and grade.
