Abstract

Paraffin sections from 30 human breast tissue specimens were stained with a specific antibody for thymosin beta-10, ATB10(38-43). The results showed that thymosin beta-10 was detected mainly in the malignant tissue, particularly in the cancerous cells, whereas the normal cell population around the lesions showed very weak staining. Also, the intensity of staining in the cancerous cells was proportionally increased with the increasing grade of the lesions.
