Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is one of the most common malignant tumors in southern China and Southeast Asia. It is characterized as a multistep process involved in multiple genetic and epigenetic events. The mechanism of carcinogenesis still needs to be further clarified. In this study, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS), RT-PCR, Western blot and immunohistochemical (IHC) analyses were used to… CONTINUE READING
