Plk2 promotes tumor growth and inhibits apoptosis by targeting Fbxw7/Cyclin E in colorectal cancer.

Polo-like kinase 2 (Plk2) and Polo-like kinase 3 (Plk3) have been documented as a tumor suppressor and are lowly expressed in several types of cancer. However, our results showed that Plk3 was lowly expressed, whereas Plk2 expressed highly in tumor tissues. We therefore aimed to explore the mechanisms governing the role of Plk2 in colorectal cancer (CRC… (More)
