Restricted expression of oncofetal fibronectin mRNA in the tissues of thyroid papillary and anaplastic carcinoma has recently been shown by both Northern blot analysis and reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Oncofetal fibronectin mRNA can be a target of gene diagnosis and targeted gene therapy, provided it is expressed in all cancer cells in the tissues. To investigate this criterion in thyroid cancer tissues, we measured their expression of oncofetal fibronectin mRNA… CONTINUE READING
