There is a general agreement that a large subpopulation of serous ovarian cancers arise from the fallopian tube mucosal epithelium. However, there is still some debate as to whether the cancers originate from a secretory or ciliate cell lineage. One well established method for determining the origin of a cell line is to document the expression of genes and proteins that are cell type specific. Lineage or tissue specific patterns of gene expression are evidence of direct decent from a given cell… CONTINUE READING
