Abstract

Low expression of myeloid/lymphoid or mixed-lineage leukemia 3 (MLL3) is reportedly associated with gastric cancer and tumor progression. The purpose of this study was to examine the expression of MLL3 in tissue samples of patients with gastric cancer and to analyze the relationship between MLL3 protein expression and clinical records. Using immunohistochemical staining and Kaplan-Meier analysis for MLL3 in gastric cancer patients, we found that low expression of MLL3 had a significant relationship with a low survival rate compared to positive MLL3 expression in the patients analyzed (P
