This study shows for the first time that expression or nonexpression of the Wilms tumor suppressor 1 gene (WT1) and WTI antisense (WT1-AS) genes is an important biochemical feature that distinguishes serous from clear cell ovarian adenocarcinoma, respectively. CpG hypermethylation of the WT1 and WT1-AS gene promoters is shown to be an important mechanism that leads to their inactivation in ovarian clear cell adenocarcinoma.
