Thyroid-specific genes, such as thyroid peroxidase, thyroglobulin, Na+/I− symporter and thyroid-stimulating hormone receptor, play fundamental roles in thyroid function and relate to many pathological conditions. Using sequence specific-differential display, we detected three genes that showed higher expression levels in normal thyroid tissues than in thyroid tumor tissues. After subcloning and sequencing analysis, one of the genes was revealed to be tensin3. The expression level of tensin3 was… CONTINUE READING
