Tissue ischemia time affects gene and protein expression patterns within minutes following surgical tumor excision.

The aim of this study was to determine the impact of ischemia on gene and protein expression profiles of healthy and malignant colon tissue and, thus, on screening studies for identification of molecular targets and diagnostic molecular patterns. Healthy and malignant colon tissue were snap-frozen at various time points (3-30 min) after colon resection… CONTINUE READING
