The comparison of the gene expression profiles between two subpopulations of melanoma cells (1C8 and T1C3) derived from the tumor of one patient by cDNA array revealed differences in GAPDH and beta-actin gene levels. These two housekeeping genes were up-regulated in invasive T1C3 melanoma cells compared to noninvasive 1C8 cells. Since cDNA array results(More)
Defensins have been identified as key elements of innate immunity against microbial infections. In the present study, human β-defensin-2 (hBD-2) mRNA and peptide expression were evaluated by RT-PCR and Western blotting in normal human keratinocytes, in function of their stage of differentiation. In proliferating, non-differentiating keratinocytes generated(More)
