Loss expression of active fragile sites genes associated with the severity of breast epithelial abnormalities.

BACKGROUND WWOX and FHIT are two candidate tumor suppressor genes located in active fragile sites, the damage of which has been associated with the development of breast cancer. The association of the expression of these genes and the development of breast cancer has not been fully explored. We evaluated mRNA and protein expression of WWOX and FHIT in… CONTINUE READING
