O-7: Differentially Expressed micoRNs Abetween Cancer Stem Cells and Cancer Cells Derived from Human Gastric Cancer Cell Line MKN-45


It is believed that cancers may arise from some special cells named cancer stem cells (CSC). However, the molecular mechanisms, which distinguish them from cancer cells, remain obscure. As microRNAs play an important role in regulating cell proliferation and differentiation, we compared some specific microRNAs between CSCs and cancer cells of human gastric cancer cell line MKN-45.
