Table 2. Relationship of β-catenin protein localization and miR-221 protein expression in pterygia.
Low (n=48) (%)
High (n=72) (%)
Negative/ Membrane (n=94)
β-catenin analyzed in this study is based on prior pterygium samples.6 The Fisher’s exact test was applied for statistical analysis. A P < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant.
Coefficient of determination (R^2)>0.8.
