Heat shock exerts anticancer effects on liver cancer via autophagic degradation of aquaporin 5.

Abstract

Previous studies described that the expression of aquaporin 5 (AQP5) was altered in tumors of various organs. AQP5 is attracting attention as a new cancer therapeutic target. In the present study, heat shock-induced changes in AQP5 expression were evaluated by immunofluorescent staining (IF) and western blotting (WB) of liver cancer cells. AQP5 knockdown… (More)
