OBJECTIVE To investigate abnormal protein expression of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) in human gastric adenocarcinoma, and further reveal the clinical significance. METHOD The MMP-9, VEGF and PCNA proteins expression was determined by immunohistochemistry(More)
The Akt/PKB kinase family, including Akt1, 2 and 3, plays critical roles in regulating cell growth, proliferation, survival, metabolic and many other cellular activities. Recent evidence indicates that PKB/Akt is frequently constitutively active in many types of human cancer including gastric cancer. In the present study, we applied immunohistochemistry to(More)
