MicroRNA-421 (miR-421) plays crucial roles during carcinogenesis and is a potential tumor marker in the diagnosis of several types of cancers. However, whether miR-421 in gastric juice, which is specific for gastric tissue, can be used as a biomarker for gastric cancer screening is unclear. In the present study, real-time quantitative reverse transcription… CONTINUE READING
