[Association of Bmi-1 mRNA expression with differentiation, metastasis and prognosis of gastric carcinoma].

OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of B cell-specific MLV integration site-1 (Bmi-1) mRNA expression level with the differentiation, metastasis and prognosis of gastric carcinoma. METHODS Tissue specimens were obtained from 42 patients undergoing surgery for gastric carcinomas. Reverse transcriptional PCR (RT-PCR) was performed for amplification of… CONTINUE READING
