Several members of the transmembrane 4 superfamily (TM4SF) have been reported to be related to tumor progression and metastasis. The aims of our study were to clarify the relationship between TM4SF and pancreatic cancer and to determine the prognostic significance of TM4SF in human pancreatic cancer. The mRNA levels for MRP-1/CD9, KAI1/CD82 and ME491/CD63, which belong to the TM4SF gene family, were evaluated in 40 resectable pancreatic adenocarcinomas using reverse transcriptase-PCR. MRP-1/CD9… CONTINUE READING
