Heatmap of differential expression of ribosomal protein genes in the malignant epithelium and tumor stroma. Differential expression of ribosomal protein genes in ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC), ductal carcinoma in situ-associated stroma (DCIS-S) and invasive ductal carcinoma-associated stroma (IDC-S). Data shown are log2(fold change) relative to the average expression level in the normal controls (normal breast epithelium or normal stromal compartment). Expression measurements for multiple probe sets representing the same gene were collapsed to the single representative probe set with the largest differential gene expression. All genes shown were significant at adjusted P < 0.05. IS, ductal carcinoma in situ; INV, invasive ductal carcinoma; ISS, ductal carcinoma in situ-associated stroma; INVS, invasive ductal carcinoma-associated stroma.
