Additional file 2: Figure S1. of Metalloprotease-disintegrin ADAM12 actively promotes the stem cell-like phenotype in claudin-low breast cancer

ADAM12 mRNA is upregulated in claudin-low breast cancers. a Heatmap showing ADAM12 mRNA expression levels in 295 breast cancer patients from the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) database [31]. Molecular subtypes of tumors are: B, basal; CL, claudin-low; HER2+, HER2-enriched; LumA, luminal A; LumB, luminal B; NL, normal-like. b Expression levels of ADAM12 in 508 breast cancer patients from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA, Nature 2012 dataset) [33].
