AIM To examine the expression of survivin in benign ovarian tumors, ovarian carcinomas of different stages. METHODS We screened the expression of survivin mRNA by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction in 114 ovarian tissue samples. Quantitative real-time PCR was used to estimate survivin mRNA levels in the samples with positive survivin expression. RESULTS No survivin mRNA was expressed in all normal ovarian specimens, while it appeared in 73% of ovarian carcinomas, 47% of… CONTINUE READING
