Expression of hexokinase 2 in epithelial ovarian tumors and its clinical significance in serous ovarian cancer.

Abstract

"Warburg effect" emphasizes that malignant cells exhibit active glycolysis even under aerobic conditions. Hexokinase 2 (HK2) is a key glycolytic enzyme that helps to exhibit a "Warburg effect". In the present study, the main aim was to detect the expression of HK2 in epithelial ovarian tumor tissues. Immunohistochemistry and qRT-PCR were used to examine the… (More)
