Induction of mesothelioma in the rat is an important animal model for assessing the carcinogenic potential of fibers and for understanding the molecular basis underlying the development of these tumors. Mesotheliomas and nephroblastoma (Wilms' tumor) have many developmental, biochemical, and histological similarities; however, the expression of the Wilms' tumor suppressor gene, WT-1, has not been well characterized in the rat, and its expression pattern in rat or human mesothelioma has not beenpmid:8205524 fatcat:d64xbnuytzfunaj72your7ai6u
