Table 1 Summary data of gene methylation in tumor and normal epithelium and endothelium from 8 whole mount prostate specimens.

From: Tumor-associated endothelial cells display GSTP1 and RARβ2 promoter methylation in human prostate cancer

Histology Tissue Gene Methylation Positive* No. (%)
   GSTP1 RARβ2
Tumor (n = 8) Endothelium 8 (100%) 7 (88%)
  Epithelium 8 (100%) 7 (88%)
Normal (n = 8) Endothelium 2 (25%) 0 (0%)
  Epithelium 0 (0%) 0 (0%)
  1. *Gene methylation determined by QMS-PCR and considered positive if any methylation observed.
