Commonly down-regulated genes in HCC

Among 170 genes identified as down-regulated, functions indicated for the 92 genes with official names that were down-regulated in HCCs were summarized from literature sources. Another three genes were categorized as having known or inferred functions according to the locus link in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/LocusLink). The remaining 75 genes were ESTs and genes with unknown function. Some genes have multiple values because multiple spots were attributed to them.
