TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 are implicated in tumor invasion and metastasis. The purpose of this study was to examine TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 expression in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), and to assess association of TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 expression with several clinicopathological indicators of PTC. TGF-β1, SNAI1 and MMP-9 protein expression in 83 PTCs(More)
Hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) is upregulated by hypoxia, and involved in tumor growth and metastasis in many malignant tumors including papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). Metallothionein (MT) is a group of small molecular weight cysteine-rich proteins with a broad variety of functions. SLUG is a member of SNAIL superfamily of zinc finger(More)
G protein-coupled estrogen receptor 1 (GPER1) is widely expressed in human breast cancers correlating with increased tumor size and malignancy. Although estrogen signaling via GPER1 was extensively studied in recent years, the underlying molecular mechanism of GPER1-associated metastasis of breast cancer still remains unclear. In this study, the main aims(More)
