Pituitary tumor-transforming gene-1 (PTTG-1) is a novel protooncogene overexpressed in numerous cancer cell lines and cancers. In this study we elucidate the expression of PTTG-1 in uterine leiomyomas and its functional role in the development of this disease. By comparing 23 pairs of leiomyomas and matched pairs of myometria, we found that the expression… CONTINUE READING
