AIM To understand CD133 promoter hypermethylation and expression in 32 colorectal cancer cell lines. METHODS Nucleic acid was isolated from 32 colorectal cancer cell lines and CD133 expression levels were measured by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and real-time PCR. Promoter methylation status of the CD133 gene was analyzed with… CONTINUE READING
