The cation channels of the transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily are implicated in cancer formation; in particular, TRPC3 has been shown to contribute to the progression of human ovarian cancer. However, the relationship between TRP expression and the clinicopathological characteristics of lung cancer and patient prognosis is not well understood. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between TRP expression and the prognosis of patients with adenocarcinoma of the lung. We used… CONTINUE READING
