The expression of the Wnt-antagonist Dickkopf gene (DKK) is downregulated in several types of tumors as a consequence of epigenetic DNA modification; four DKK members, DKK1, DKK2, DKK3, and DKK4, have been identified. In this study, we investigated another function of DKK3 in non-small cell lung cancer H460 cells, in which DKK3 was hypermethylated (44%) but still expressed, by interfering with DKK3 expression using DKK3-silencing RNA (SiRNA). We found that knockdown of DKK3 expression by DKK3… CONTINUE READING
