Enhanced RNA expression of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP-1) in human breast cancer.

Abstract

Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP-1) is known to have at least 2 distinct types of activity, i.e., as a regulator of collagenolytic activity, and erythroid potentiating activity (EPA). In this study, we examined the expression of TIMP-1 in human mammary carcinomas, non-malignant breast tissues and benign breast tumors. A total of 53 samples… (More)
