26261554 Suggest that Dsc3 can mediate FSH-induced ovarian cancer cell proliferation by activating the EGFR/Akt signaling pathway.
24664224 data suggests that DNA methylation contributes to down-regulation of DSC3 in prostate cancer, and loss of DSC3 predicts poor clinical outcome.

17846785 results suggest an abnormal expression of Dsc3, Dsg3, & beta-catenin induced in the progression of oral carcinomas & that Dsc3 expression level might be related to the regulation of beta-catenin in lymph node metastasis and cell proliferation in OSCCs.
17088906 Increased Dsc3 protein is associated with colorectal cancer
16168112 Lss of DSC3 expression is a common event in primary breast tumor specimens, and DSC3 gene silencing in breast tumors is frequently linked to aberrant cytosine methylation and concomitant changes in chromatin structure.
12789271 Gene-profiling experiments of breast cancer cells infected with wt p53 revealed both MASPIN and desmocollin 3 (DSC3) to be p53-target genes, even though both genes are silenced in association with aberrant cytosine methylation of their promoters
