The expression of the M(r) 67,000 laminin receptor, a nonintegrin laminin receptor, was found to be up-regulated in neoplastic cells and to directly correlate with invasion and metastatic potential. In the present study, we investigated the role of laminin receptor in mediating laminin effects and the involvement of the mitogen-activated protein kinases(More)
BACKGROUND While numerous studies have characterized primary ovarian tumors, little information is available regarding expression patterns of metastatic sites of this cancer. To define sets of genes that distinguish primary and metastatic ovarian tumors, we used cDNA microarrays to characterize global gene expression patterns in 38 effusions (28 peritoneal,(More)
We studied the role of caveolin-1 in tumor progression and prognosis in serous ovarian carcinoma and the association between caveolin-1 and MDR1 expression. The study involved immunohistochemical analysis for caveolin-1 and P-glycoprotein (P-gp) expression in 75 effusions and 90 solid lesions from ovarian and primary peritoneal carcinoma; in situ(More)
A b s t r a c t We studied the levels of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2, membrane-type (MT)1-MMP, MT2-MMP, and MT3-MMP in 43 malignant pleural and peritoneal effusions using reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and cellular localization of MT1-MMP in 66 effusion specimens and 85 corresponding primary and metastatic tumors using(More)
