Each frame illustrates the same region of the 2-DE gel pattern, containing calreticulin precursor (upper left in each frame) and hsp60 (middle right), among others. Approximately 1100 protein spots were matched in each pattern, with 415 spots matched in every pattern. Abbreviation: 2-DE, two-dimensional electrophoresis.
