Identifying overexpressed genes in tumours is a critical step for tumour diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. Using differential display polymerase chain reaction, sequence analysis, and gene Blast searches, we discovered that human prostaglandin F synthase (hPGFS) was upregulated in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). Northern blot… CONTINUE READING
