Over-expression of miR-100 is responsible for the low-expression of ATM in the human glioma cell line: M059J.
M059J and M059K cells were isolated from different portions of the same human malignant glioma. M059J cells are more radiosensitive than M059K cells due to the absence of DNA-PKcs and low-expressionExpand
