Table 1. SLC5A8 methylation in colon tumors and matched normal mucosa
Normal tissue
Tumor tissue Methylated Unmethylated
Methylated 3 (5%) 35 (54%)
Unmethylated 0 (0%) 26 (41%)
  • Shown is the characterization of 64 pairs of colon cancer tumors and matched normal colon tissues assayed for methylation of SLC5A8 exon 1 by MS-PCR. Indicated are the numbers (and percentages) of tissue pairs with each of the four possible methylation phenotypes
