As a glycol-protein located in extracellular matrix (ECM), tenascin-C (TNC) is absent in most normal adult tissues but is highly expressed in the majority of malignant solid tumors. Pancreatic cancer is characterized by an abundant fibrous tissue rich in TNC. Although it was reported that TNC’s expression increased in the progression from low-grade(More)
Pancreatic cancer is a drug resistant hypovascular tumor. Although there are many studies on the mechanism of chemoresistance in pancreatic cancers, studies on the relationship between ABCG2 and chemoresistance during hypoxia of pancreatic cancer are rare. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1α) is a master regulator of the transcriptional response to oxygen(More)
