Biochemical analysis of HLA class I subunits expression in breast cancer tissues.

The expression of HLA class I alpha-chain and beta(2)-m subunits was studied at the protein level by a semiquantitative Western blot (WB) approach, in 25 primary breast tumors. The results indicated three pathways of alterations defined comparing the tumor WB gel band with the corresponding PBL gel band: (i) high downregulation pattern (the tumor WB gel… CONTINUE READING
