Analysis of splice variants of the fibronectin gene in thyroid carcinomas by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction: increased expression of oncofetal fibronectin mRNA in papillary carcinomas is not caused by the alternation in splicing.

Abstract

The expression levels of each splice variant of the fibronectin gene in the normal thyroid and in thyroid tumors were examined by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). In thyroid papillary carcinomas, insertion of a variant exon in the ED-A and ED-B domains, and three of five types of splice variants in the IIICS domain were observed. In… (More)
