Identifying the genetic variants that alter MUC1 protein expression may further our understanding of the risk for development of gastric cancer (GC). We used PCR-SSPs to identify the genotype of MUC1 A/G polymorphism at its 568 site of exon 2 and immunohistochemistry to detect MUC1 protein expression in GC patients and non-cancer subjects and analyzed the association between this polymorphism and MUC1 protein expression. We found that the frequency of AA genotype was significantly high in the...[Show more]
