  • a The association among expression of matriptase, HGF, HAI-1, and Met (using antibodies to both the cytoplasmic and extracellular domains) were determined using χ2 analysis. Statistically significant observations are in boldface. All significant associations are direct (i.e. high-expression of one marker correlates with high-expression of the other).
