Melanoma inhibitory activity (MIA), a serological marker of malignant melanoma.

Abstract

Melanoma inhibitory activity (MIA) was originally identified as an 11 kDa protein secreted from malignant melanoma cells. We have shown that MIA is strongly expressed in melanoma and melanoma cell lines but not in melanocytes and normal skin. We also observed that MIA mRNA expression correlates with progressive malignancy of melanocytic tumors. Measuring… (More)
