Figure 4

Cell growth vs. UCP2 expression in fibroblast controls vs. cancer lines. Purple series represents UCP2 in cells grown in glucose medium; blue series represents cell lines grown in glucose plus acetoacetate. Cancer lines over-express UCP2 vs. control fibroblasts when grown in either medium. Asterisks reflect significant differences (p < 0.05) in UCP2 values for cells grown in G or G+AcA growth medium when compared to corresponding results from all fibroblast lines. Data are from Table 1.
