Reciprocal immunohistochemical expression of sodium/iodide symporter and hexokinase I in primary thyroid tumors with synchronous cervical metastasis.


OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Sodium/iodide symporter (NIS) is a glycoprotein which is related to the concentration of radioiodine in thyroid cancer. Glucose transporter-1 (Glut-1) and hexokinases (HK) are glycoproteins related to glucose metabolism (i.e., uptake and phosphorylation) in various cancers. The aim of this study was to determine the immunohistochemical… (More)
