Significance of alpha-1-antitrypsin mRNA expression in esophageal carcinoma.


Alpha-1-antitrypsin (alpha 1AT) is present not only in the normal gastrointestine, but in malignant gastrointestinal tissue as well. We studied the expression of alpha 1AT mRNA in 30 cases of esophageal carcinoma using a Northern blot analysis. In addition, we also examined the expression of matrix metalloproteinase 7 (MMP7) mRNA in the latest 15 cases by… (More)
