Plasmids containing inserts representing pancreatic adenocarcinoma-specific genes have been isolated from a cDNA library. These genes are not amplified in the transformed genome and do not appear to be mutated. The level of transcription of one gene (2CF1) is increased in pancreatic adenocarcinoma, but not in the normal adult pancreas, or PBL. The protein product of this differentially expressed gene may be related to malignant transformation in pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
