Correlation between expression of the matrix metalloproteinase-1 gene in ovarian cancers and an insertion/deletion polymorphism in its promoter region.
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a family of closely related enzymes that degrade the extracellular matrix, are likely to be involved in invasion and metastasis of tumor cells. A guanine (G)Expand
