Table 1: Selected expression of putative ccRCC protein biomarkers in pooled normal (N) and tumor (T) tissues representative of Stage 1-4 cancers. Individual renal tissues (10-15 mg) from matched tumor and normal pairs were processed by trifluoroethanol (TFE) solubilization and sonication as adapted from Wang et al. [104]. Following trypsin digestion, the resulting peptides were separated by MudPIT and analyzed for protein identification as described in the legend to Table 2. Results are listed as spectral counts for each indicated protein.
