Mucin gene expression in Barrett's oesophagus: an in situ hybridisation and immunohistochemical study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Mucin genes are expressed in a site specific manner throughout the gastrointestinal tract. Little is known about the expression pattern in the oesophagus. In this study we have investigated MUC gene expression in both the normal oesophagus and specialised intestinal metaplasia (Barrett's oesophagus). PATIENTS Archived paraffin embedded… (More)
