Pathology

- MTA1 has been identified as a metastasis-promoting gene

  • MTA1 gene expression is correlated with serosal invasion and lymph node metastasis in the gastrointestinal and esophageal cancers
  • MT1A is overexpressed in pancreatic carcinomas (MT1A is involved in the progression, particularly in lymph node metastasis.)
