From: Bile and urine peptide marker profiles: access keys to molecular pathways and biological processes in cholangiocarcinoma

Fig. 3

Functional association of proteins from which the cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) peptide markers included in the bile and urine proteomic models are derived together with the proteases predicted to be responsible for the generation of these peptides. Proteins were analyzed by functional Gene Ontology biological process group-clustering using CytoScape’s ClueGO plug-in (CytoScape v2.8.3, ClueGO v1.5). Enriched GO-terms are represented as circles, and lines denote the relationship between these terms as functional groups. Line thickness and font-size are directly correlated with the statistical significance of terms and relationships (all with p <  0.05 after Bonferroni-adjustment for multiple testing correction). Statistically significant molecules primarily identified and modulated in bile are marked by a small red circle, whereas urinary proteins are small green circles. The larger circles are associated with GO terms and the coloration is either urine (green) or modulated in both sources (grey)
