Evaluation of thymidylate synthase protein expression by Western blotting and immunohistochemistry on human colon carcinoma xenografts in nude mice.

Abstract

In this study we investigated the relationship between thymidylate synthase (TS) protein expression, evaluated by Western blotting analysis and by immunohistochemistry (IHC), and growth rate in human colon xenograft tumors in nude mice. Human colon cancer cell lines were used to induce xenograft tumors and the tumor mass growth rate was calculated by… (More)
