Loss of 33H4 may be accompanied by deletion of an adjacent gene. 12B1 as transposon may suppress the tumorigenesis by activating suppressor genes or/and by inactivating oncogenes. 12H1/33H3, 12H2, 33B2 and 33B3 may be candidates of tumor suppressor genes associated with the development and the progression of esophageal cancer.
