c-myc Gene amplification in primary stomach cancer

Jpn J Cancer Res. 1985 Jul;76(7):551-4.


Fourteen human primary stomach cancer tissues were screened by Southern blot hybridization using six oncogene probes (myc, myb, H-ras, K-ras, abl, mos), and an amplification of c-myc oncogene was found in one tissue. This is the first report of c-onc amplification in primary stomach cancer tissue.
