Disease relevance of WSB2


High impact information on WSB2

  • We have carried out a percolation analysis of the adsorption of ethane and nitrogen in SBA-2, a structured mesoporous silica consisting of a hexagonal close-packed (hcp) array of spherical cavities connected by cylindrical channels [2].
  • AIM: To investigate SBA2 expression in CRC cell lines and surgical specimens of CRC and autologous healthy mucosa [1].
  • Of the 9 cases with lymph nodes affected, 78% (7/9) had reduced SBA2 mRNA expression in contrast to 24% (5/21) in non-metastasis samples 0.01>P<0.05) [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of WSB2

  • METHODS: Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used for relative quantification of SBA2 mRNA levels in 4 human CRC cell lines with different grades of differentiation and 30 clinical samples [1].
