Effects of Fixation and Storage of Human Tissue Samples on Nucleic Acid Preservation


BACKGROUND Because of recent advances in the molecular diagnosis of cancer patients, tissue quality has become more important in daily practice. METHODS To evaluate the effects of fixative, duration of fixation, decalcification, and storage periods on nucleic acid integrity, DNA and RNA were extracted from gastrointestinal cancer tissue. The yield and… (More)
