Analysis of chromosomal changes in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) can illuminate the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of this cancer, which is among the 10 most common malignant tumors. Cell lines are better suited than surgical samples for chromosome analysis in this cancer. This study used multicolor fluorescence in situ hybridization (M-FISH) to characterize the molecular cytogenetics of ESCC in cell line KYSE180. Two pools of 12-color whole… CONTINUE READING
