Differential display is a valuable tool for the identification of differentially expressed genes in human carcinogenesis and development. The search for differentially expressed genes in gastric cancer and its premalignant lesions may help to define molecular alterations in the gastric mucosa that may precede the development of gastric cancer. Using the differential display technique, we identified a cDNA fragment, encoding metallothionein (MT) IIa mRNA. We performed immunohistochemical… CONTINUE READING
