We recently developed a sensitive and flexible gene expression profiling system that is not dependent on an intact poly-A tail and showed that it could be used to analyze degraded RNA samples. We hypothesized that the DASL (cDNA-mediated annealing, selection, extension and ligation) assay might be suitable for the analysis of formalin-fixed,(More)
Identifying the primary site in patients with metastatic carcinoma of unknown primary origin can enable more specific therapeutic regimens and may prolong survival. Twenty-three putative tissue-specific markers for lung, colon, pancreatic, breast, prostate, and ovarian carcinomas were nominated by querying a gene expression profile database and by(More)
