PURPOSE To explore the involvement of enzymes of drug metabolism in renal cell carcinoma we analyzed the gene expression profiles of tumor and nontumor tissues from the same patient by DNA macroarray. The enzyme nicotinamide N-methyltransferase was selected for further evaluation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nicotinamide N-methyltransferase mRNA expression was investigated in paired tissue samples from cancerous and noncancerous parts of the kidneys of 30 patients with clear cell renal cell… CONTINUE READING
