26397940 These findings indicate that downregulated AJAP1 transcription may serve as a novel tumor biomarker to predict recurrence of ESCC after esophagectomy.
26122373 Reduced Expression of Adherens Junctions Associated Protein 1 is associated with Recurrence of Hepatocellular Carcinoma After Curative Hepatectomy.
24807315 Article summarizes and discusses current knowledge that may identify AJAP1 as a tumor suppressor in gliomas. [Review]
24483339 Results show that AJAP1 is dysregulated at an early stage of gliomagenesis and may suppress glioma cell invasion and proliferation, which suggests that AJAP1 may be a potential diagnostic and prognostic marker for gliomas
24481586 AJAP1 suppressed the expression of MAGEA2 and inhibited the transcriptional activity of MAGEA2 in glioma cells.
23064961 We also identified a significant genetic association between caries of the mid- dentition tooth surfaces and AJAP1 (p value = 2e-8), a gene possibly involved in tooth development.
22241217 This work shows the significant loss of expression of AJAP1 in glioblastoma and provides evidence of its role in the highly migratory characteristic of these tumors.
21439246 Both genetic (gene deletion) and epigenetic alterations (promoter methylation) are likely mechanisms that inactivate the putative tumor suppressor AJAP1 in gliomas, which contributes to poor prognosis.
19850283 Observational study and genome-wide association study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19515834 Data show that overexpression of shrew-1 leads to preformation of an E-cadherin/EGF receptor/HER2/src-kinase/shrew-1 signaling complex and accelerated E-cadherin internalization.
19240061 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18485053 synergism between a signal peptide and a transmembrane segment to mediate plasma membrane localization is essential for structural and/or functional integrity of shrew-1
17267690 shrew-1 has a function in the regulation of cellular invasion, which may involve its interaction with CD147
16707570 Adaptor protein complex AP-1B is involved in retaining shrew-1 at the basolateral membrane by postendocytic sorting mechanisms.
16410724 While a mutation was not detected in the coding region of the SHREW1 gene in oligodendrogliomas, SHREW1 expression restoration resulted in suppression of cell adhesion and migration, thus, SHREW1 inactivation may lead to oligodendroglial tumorigenesis.
