Comparative studies of calretinin expression by WiDr cell line in vivo in xenografts in nude mice and in vitro.

WiDr cells from a human colon adenocarcinoma cultivated in vitro express the calcium binding protein calretinin. The immunoreactivity is present in some interphasic cells and decreases after seven days in culture together with the augmentation of the cell number. Calretinin expression is maintained in the undifferentiated cells of the tumoral mass developed… CONTINUE READING
