Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction
|Issue Date:||23-Aug-1996||Citation:||Khoo, H.-E., Ho, C.-L., Chhatwal, V.J.S., Chan, S.T.F., Ngoi, S.-S., Moochhala, S.M. (1996-08-23).

Using a quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method, mRNA for A1R and A2R was measured in human colorectal adenocarcinomas and individual peritumoural colon tissues. There was differential expression of the mRNA for A1R with tumour tissues having significantly higher amounts compared to peritumoural normal tissues. The mRNA for A2R was not found to be differentially expressed. The increase in the inhibitory A1 receptor in tumour tissues may be in response to increased adenosine release from the hypoxic cells found in malignant tumour tissues, thus indicating a possible role for the adenosine A1 receptor in carcinogenesis.||Source Title:||Cancer Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/107787||ISSN:||03043835||DOI:||10.1016/0304-3835(96)04289-9|
