Immunoelectron microscopic localization of transforming growth factor beta 1 and latent transforming growth factor beta 1 binding protein in human gastrointestinal carcinomas: qualitative difference between cancer cells and stromal cells.

Abstract

Transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) is secreted as an inactive complex associated with latent TGF-beta 1 binding protein (LTBP). Tissue localization of these proteins has not been fully understood in human pathological conditions. We examined the immunohistochemical localization of TGF-beta 1 precursor (proTGF-beta 1) and LTBP in carcinomas and… (More)
