26084486 Our findings identified these 2 genes as a novel breast cancer biomarker gene set, which may facilitate the diagnosis and treatment in breast cancer clinical therapies.
25924634 HPSE2 mutations were found in one Urofacial syndrome family but not detected in patients with non-neurogenic neurogenic bladder and severe lower urinary tract dysfunction
25423319 Heparanase 2 is more intensely expressed in the glandular tissue of cancer than in nonneoplastic endometrium; the HPSE2 expression in the stromal tissue is higher in the nonneoplastic controls compared with cancer mainly in the secretory endometrium.
25145936 autonomic neural protein implicated in bladder emptying
24139593 High expression of heparanase-2 is associated significantly with gastric tumor growth and differentiation
23370684 Data indicate that the overexpression of HPSE1 and HPSE2 in the intervertebral degenerated discs suggests a role for these factors in mediating extracellular matrix remodeling in degenerative discs during disease development.
21450525 A large region of marker homozygosity was observed at 10q24, consistent with known autosomal recessive inheritance, family consanguinity and previous genetic mapping in other families with Ochoa syndrome.
21332471 HPSE2 c.631T>C (p.Y211H) is a novel benign SNP and c.1628A>T (p.N543I) is the disease-causing mutation in urofacial syndrome.
21308479 Studies indicate that cathepsin L as the heparanase activating protease.
20560210 Homozygous exonic deletions, nonsense mutations, and frameshift mutations in five further unrelated families confirmed HPSE2 as the causative gene for UFS
20560209 We now report evidence that Heparanse 2 (HPSE2) is the culprit gene for the syndrome. Mutations with a loss of function in the Heparanase 2 (HPSE2) gene
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20182872 Results demonstrated that the effectors from heparanase peptide-immunized mice could effectively lyse various tumor cells that were heparanase positive and HLA-A*0201 matched.
20031192 These results indicate a regulatory effect of heparanase on TFPI and TFPI-2 in trophoblasts, suggesting a potential involvement of heparanase in early miscarriages.
19955924 Heparanase 2 is involved in neoplastic proliferation, but it was not exclusively associated with the malignant process.
18058084 Data suggest that loss of modified heparan sulphate in the GBM is mediated by an increased heparanase presence and may play a role in the pathogenesis of diabetes-induced proteinuria.
17989358 HPSE plays a role in extracellular matrix remodeling and in increasing heparin-binding growth factor release during embryo implantation.
16879396 Heparanase expression is inversely correlated with survival of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients, indicating heparanase is a reliable prognostic factor, and further supports that heparanase is a valid target for the development of anti-cancer drugs.
16385451 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
15837740 Heparanase expression seems to be involved in the invasiveness and aggressiveness of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas.
15709168 Study demonstrating that increased heparanase expression in prostate cancer tissues is due to promoter hypomethylation and up-regulation of transcription factor EGR1.
15475937 Heparanase may facilitate invasion and metastasis of gastric carcinoma cells.
