Nestin expression correlates with nerve and retroperitoneal tissue invasion in pancreatic cancer.

Abstract

Nestin was first described as an intermediate filament protein expressed in neuroepithelial stem cells. Nestin expression has also been reported in brain tumors, schwannomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and melanomas. In the pancreas, Nestin expression has been detected in exocrine and mesenchymal cells, including stellate cells, pericytes, and… (More)
