Down‐regulated expression of SATB2 is associated with metastasis and poor prognosis in colorectal cancer
To identify novel biomarkers of metastasis of colorectal cancer (CRC), we developed an orthotopic implantation model of murine CRC and selected in vivo M5, a subclone of the SW480 CRC cell line withExpand

Genome‐wide DNA methylation profiles in hepatocellular carcinoma
Alterations in DNA methylation frequently occur in hepatocellular cancer (HCC). We have previously demonstrated that hypermethylation in candidate genes can be detected in plasma DNA before HCCExpand
