p21 protein has been reported to be a critical downstream effector of p53 and a potent inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases. Thus, the p21 gene is thought to play a central role in tumor suppression. In this study we investigated p21 protein expression and mutation in gastric adenocarcinoma. A total of 76 primary gastric carcinoma specimens were(More)
Many types of human malignant tumor have been reported to amplify transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) gene and overexpress its protein. However, little work has been done about the content of TGF-beta 1 protein in tissue and blood of patients with malignant tumors. TGF-beta 1 protein of tissue (n = 29) and serum TGF-beta 1 levels in patients with(More)
