Identification of genes preferentially expressed in CSOC cells

Genes preferentially expressed in CSOC cells with the GenBank matches are listed. Bold lettering indicates genes encoding proteins that are expressed on the cell membrane or that are secreted. Clones that failed to match any entry in the GenBank database (as of November 15, 1999) in the BLASTN searches are considered novel.
