Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and the histogenesis of epidermoid carcinoma of the cervix

Abstract

The result of vertical starch gel electrophoresis of blood, cancerous, and noncancerous epithelium of the cervix of 18 patients who were heterozygous for G-6-PD variants is presented. Among 10 patients without cancer of the cervix, examination of the cervical epithelium showed 9 with 2 bands and one with 1 band. Among 8 patients with cancer, examination of the cancer tissue showed 5 with a single band (1A and 4B) and 3 with double bands. It is proposed that the evidence is consistent with the concept that epidermoid carcinoma of the cervix arises from a single cell. It is also concluded that the Lyon phenomenon is also functioning in at least some tumors.
