Elevated osteopontin levels in metastatic melanoma correlate with epigenetic silencing of breast cancer metastasis suppressor 1.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Breast cancer metastasis suppressor 1 (BRMS1) has been shown to functionally reduce the metastatic potential of melanoma. We also previously reported that BRMS1 negatively regulates the expression of the oncoprotein osteopontin (OPN). This study was carried out to assess the clinical relevance of BRMS1 and OPN in melanoma. METHODS Epigenetic… (More)
