Identification of c-Yes expression in the nuclei of hepatocellular carcinoma cells: involvement in the early stages of hepatocarcinogenesis.

It is thought that the subcellular distribution of Src-family tyrosine kinases, including c-Yes binding to the cellular membrane, is membranous and/or cytoplasmic. c-Yes protein tyrosine kinase is known to be related to malignant transformation. However, the expression patterns of c-Yes in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unknown. In the present study… CONTINUE READING
