Alteration of bone sialoprotein expression in osseous metastasized renal cell carcinomas and the tumor surrounding tissue

Abstract

Bone sialoprotein (BSP) regulates bone metabolism by directly influencing the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts. A significant correlation between the tissue expression of BSP in tumors and the occurrence of bone metastases was found in different cancers. Aim of this study was to identify the BSP expression in renal cell carcinomas (RCC) according to… (More)
