S014 Methylation Status of Genes in Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):840-841. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.840-c

Objectives: To determine methylation status of gene promoter regions using methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction (MS-PCR) for genes encoding for thyrotropin receptor (TSHR), E-cadherin (ECAD), sodium-iodine symporter (NIS-L), ataxia telangiectasia–mutated (ATM), and death-associated protein kinase (DAPK) proteins, and to correlate MSP results with patient variables, tumor factors, and outcome measures in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).
