Restoration of tissue factor pathway inhibitor inhibits invasion and tumor growth in vitro and in vivo in a malignant meningioma cell line.

Abstract

Tissue factor pathway inhibitor 2 (TFPI-2) is a 32-kDa extracellular matrix-associated kunitz-type serine proteinase inhibitor. It is secreted by all vascular cells and plays a role in tumor invasion and metastasis, presumably by plasmin-mediated matrix remodeling. Previous studies have shown high expression of TFPI-2 by benign tumors and low or absent… (More)
