Familial tumoral calcinosis is characterized by ectopic calcifications and hyperphosphatemia due to inactivating mutations in FGF23 or UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 3 (GALNT3). Herein we report a homozygous missense mutation (H193R) in the KLOTHO (KL) gene of a 13-year-old girl who presented with severe(More)
Transmembrane protein 88 (TMEM88) is a transmembrane protein that plays a crucial role in regulating human stem cell differentiation and embryonic development. However, its expression and clinicopathologic significance in human neoplasms is unclear. In this study, the expression and subcellular localizations of TMEM88 were assessed in 214 cases of non-small(More)
TMEM88, a newly discovered protein localized on the cell membrane, inhibits canonical Wnt signaling. Immunohistochemic alanalysis of 139 breast cancers pecimens(64 triple-negative cancers and 75 non-triple-negative cancers) indicated that TMEM88 is expressed at significantly higher levels in breast cancer tissues (71.22%, 99/139) than in normal breast(More)
Solitary fibrous tumors (SFTs)/hemangiopericytomas (HPCs) are uncommon mesenchymal neoplasms of fibroblastic type that can arise anywhere in the body. Recently, NGFI-A binding protein 2 (NAB2)-signal transducer and the activator of transcription 6 (STAT6) fusion gene were discovered as a hallmark of SFTs/HPCs by using whole-exome, and transcriptome(More)
Diversin was recently reported to play roles in Wnt and JNK pathways. However, the expression pattern and biological roles of diversin in human breast cancer have not been reported. In the present study, we found that diversin was overexpressed in breast cancer specimens by immunohistochemistry and western blot. Significant association was observed between(More)
The expression and significance of Diversin in human tumors remains unclear. We found that Diversin was overexpressed in NSCLC, and exhibited direct correlation to poor differentiation, advanced TNM stage, lymph node metastasis and survival time. Overexpression of Diversin lead to a significant increase in proliferation and invasion of NSCLC cells, possibly(More)
Intraductal proliferative lesions of the breast including usual ductal hyperplasia (UDH), atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) are associated with increased risk, albeit of greatly different magnitudes, for the subsequent development of invasive carcinoma. Estrogen receptor α (ERα) has been widely accepted as a prognostic(More)
Previous study indicated diversin overexpression in human cancers. However, its expression pattern in human gliomas and the molecular mechanisms of diversin on cancer progression have not been characterized. In the present study, diversin expression was investigated in 105 glioma specimens using immunohistochemistry. Negative staining was observed in normal(More)
Chromosome 6 open reading frame 106 (C6orf106) is a newly discovered protein; its expression and clinical pathological significance in human tumors remains unclear. Immunohistochemistry, Western blot, and immunofluorescence were performed to assess C6orf106 expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In addition, the relationships between subcellular(More)
