MUC6 down-regulation correlates with gastric carcinoma progression and a poor prognosis: an immunohistochemical study with tissue microarrays


MUC6 was first discovered by screening a gastric mucosa cDNA library and is expressed in the mucous cells of the neck zone and antral glands of the stomach. The aim of the present study was to clarify whether down-regulation has any clinicopathological or prognostic significance in gastric neoplasia. Expression of MUC6, MUC5AC and MUC2 was examined using… (More)
