Claudin-4 has been identified as an integral constituent of tight junctions and has been found to be highly expressed in pancreatic cancer. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the effect of claudin-4 on growth and metastatic potential in pancreatic cancer cells, as well as the regulation of claudin-4 by oncogenic pathways. Claudin-4 was stably(More)
In large-scale expression profiling analyses, we have previously identified genes differentially expressed between subclones of the pancreatic cancer cell line SUIT-2. One of the genes most strongly overrepresented in the highly metastatic subclone S2-007 as compared with the rarely metastatic subclone S2-028 was the serine proteinase inhibitor SERPINE2(More)
PURPOSE Malignant tumors of the pancreas are frequently indistinguishable from inflammatory tumors arising in the context of a chronic pancreatitis with the use of conventional imaging techniques. Thus, cytologic analysis of cells obtained by abdominal ultrasound, computed tomography, or endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy is required(More)
