Epigenetic alteration of the metallothionein 1E gene in human endometrial carcinomas.

Abstract

Aberrant expression of metallothioneins (MTs) has been observed in several human tumors. In our microarray analysis, MT-1E was found to have much lower expression in endometrial cancer cells as compared with other types of cancer cells generated from the cervix, ovary or prostate. The result was confirmed by quantitative RT-PCR analysis of the MT-1E levels… (More)
