Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a malignant tumor particularly common in developing countries. In this study, we used Weighted Gene Co-Expression Network Analysis (WGCNA) of chip data and screened hub genes in CRC to find the gene modules specifically correlated...


Cluster differentiation gene (CD14) is a family of monocyte differentiating genes that works in conjunction with lipopolysaccharide binding protein (LBP), forming a complex with TLR4 or LY96 to mediate innate immune response to pathogens. In this report, we used...
