Expression and localization of Reg IV in human neoplastic and non-neoplastic tissues: Reg IV expression is associated with intestinal and neuroendocrine differentiation in gastric adenocarcinoma.

Regenerating islet-derived family, member 4 (Reg IV) is a candidate marker for cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. In the present study, immunohistochemical analysis of Reg IV was performed in various human neoplastic (n = 289) and non-neoplastic tissues. In the stomach, foveolar epithelium was negative for Reg IV, whereas goblet cells of intestinal… CONTINUE READING
