Table 2 BMI-1 mRNA expression estimated by qPCR in 57 prospectively collected, fresh-frozen endometrial cancers in relation to clinicopathologic variables

From: Low BMI-1 expression is associated with an activated BMI-1-driven signature, vascular invasion, and hormone receptor loss in endometrial carcinoma
