Human pituitary tumor transforming gene (hPTTG) inhibits human lung cancer A549 cell growth through activation of p21(WAF1/CIP1 ).


Pituitary tumor transforming gene (PTTG) is a proto-oncogene cloned from rat GH4 cells. This gene was able to induce cell transformation in vitro and is also associated with p53-dependent and -independent apoptosis. In this study, we cloned human PTTG (hPTTG) from a pituitary tumor and then stably transfected the hPTTG into HeLa and A549 cells. An… (More)
