Pancreatic cancer is characterized by aggressive growth and resistance to treatment. Identification of unique biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis is important for treatment of this disease. We investigated the expression patterns of mucin 1 (MUC1), mucin 2 (MUC2) and cytokeratin 17 (CK17) in both normal tissues and metastatic adenocarcinomas using(More)
Although the molecular mechanisms for initiation of cartilage destruction in osteoarthritis (OA) are unknown, it has been demonstrated that disruption of mitogen-inducible gene 6 (Mig-6) in mice leads to the onset of a degenerative joint disease like OA. On this basis, we correlated gene expression of Mig-6 with Wnt-9a and Wnt-7b genes; we showed(More)
