Sample immunohistochemical images of beta-catenin grades. Sample images of beta-catenin staining representing (A) normal colorectal epithelial cells with intact membranous beta-catenin expression, and colorectal cancers with (B) intact membranous expression (grade 1), (C) positive cytoplasmic expression (grade 2), and (D) positive nuclear and cytoplasmic expression (grade 3).

Validation of the anti-SATB1 antibody. The specificity of the anti-SATB1 antibody was analysed using (A) ELISA and (B) Western blot against purified recombinant SATB1 and SATB2 proteins. An anti-SATB2 antibody was included as a control in the western blot experiment, which shows that both antibodies are specific for their respective proteins.
