The gene expression profiles of human endometrial carcinoma were analysed by serial of gene expression (SAGE) which allows quantitative and simultaneous analysis of a large number of transcripts. More than 22000 transcripts deriverd from a normal endometrial tissue and endometrial carcinoma tissue were analysed. While extensive similarity was noted between the expression profiles of the normal endometrial tissue and endometrial carcinoma tissue, many transcripts, such as B-factor properdin, uridine phosphorylase, and cyclin G1 interacting protein, were expressed at extremely different levels in differentiated and undifferentiated carcinoma. These data provide new information that might be used to identify genes useful for the diagnosis and treatment of endometrial carcinoma.
