Twist expression is a prognostic indicator in epithelial ovarian carcinoma

In breast cancer, cells characterized by CD44 expression but low or undetectable CD24 expres sion (CD44+CD24–/low) have been shown to have a higher tumorigenic capacity than other breast cancer cells. Liu and co-workers compared the gene-expression profiles of CD44+CD24–/low cells with those of normal breast epithelium, and developed an ‘invasiveness’ gene… CONTINUE READING
