Integrin-linked kinase expression increases with ovarian tumour grade and is sustained by peritoneal tumour fluid.

Abstract

Integrin-linked kinase (ILK) is a serine threonine kinase, overexpression of which promotes tumour growth and invasion through deregulation of the cell cycle. This study demonstrates the relative expression of ILK in normal, benign, low-grade, and high-grade (borderline, grade I/II, and grade III) ovarian tumours of serous, mucinous, endometrioid, and clear… (More)
