MUC1 is overexpressed in human carcinomas. The transcription factor SNAIL can activate epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer cells. In this study, in renal carcinoma, we demonstrate that (i) MUC1 and SNAIL were overexpressed in human sarcomatoid carcinomas, (ii) SNAIL increased indirectly MUC1 expression, (iii) MUC1 overexpression induced EMT,(More)
MUC1 is a membrane-anchored mucin and its cytoplasmic tail (CT) can interact with many signaling pathways and act as a co-transcription factor to activate genes involved in tumor progression and metastasis. MUC1 is overexpressed in renal cell carcinoma with correlation to prognosis and has been implicated in the hypoxic pathway, the main renal(More)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is characterized by acute tubular necrosis (ATN) which involves mainly proximal tubules. Past AKI is associated with higher risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The MUC1 mucin is a large glycoprotein responsible for epithelial protection and locates to convoluted distal tubules and collecting ducts. Since MUC1 activates the(More)
