KAI1 gene is a novel metastasis suppressor gene. Its transcription level has been reported to be related with metastases in several kinds of tumors. The Authors used RT-PCR method to investigate the expression levels of KAI1 gene in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues from 42 patients. The results demonstrated that 57.1% of tumor tissues were positive in KAI1 expression. There was no statistically significant difference on KAI1 gene expression rate between large (>5 cm) and small (<=5 cm… CONTINUE READING
