BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to identify homeobox genes expressed in the human colon and to determine whether their expression levels were altered between matched non-malignant and malignant colon tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS Homeobox genes expressed in colon tissue were identified by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Antibodies were raised to the homeodomain proteins DLX4, HB9 and HB24 and immunohistochemistry was performed on 3 moderately-differentiated… CONTINUE READING
