26673890 These data demonstrate that the membrane-bound serine protease hepsin is the enzyme responsible for the physiological cleavage of uromodulin.
26165838 The findings suggest that the oncogenic activity of hepsin arises not only from elevated expression level but also from depletion of HAI-1, events which together trigger gain-of-function activity impacting HGF/MET signalling and epithelial cohesion
26139199 The Hepsin pathway acts in concert with Wnt pathway to promote prostate cancer progression.
26014348 Low expression levels of hepsin and TMPRSS3 are associated with poor breast cancer survival
25576733 Hepsin suppressed CDK11p58 internal ribosome entry site activity in prostate cancer cells by modulating UNR expression and eIF-2alpha phosphorylation.
22665141 The results of this study suggest that, in Korean men, some polymorphisms in the HPN gene might be associated with the risk of developing prostate cancer.
21875933 These findings suggest that the MSP/RON signaling pathway may be regulated by hepsin in tissue homeostasis and in disease pathologies, such as in cancer and immune disorders.
21750652 Elevated levels of hepsin interfere with cell adhesion and viability in the background of prostate cancer as well as other tissue types, the details of which depend on the microenvironment provided.
21383634 hepsin expression is frequently up-regulated in breast cancer tissues, which is associated with tumor growth and progression
20673210 Hepsin activity was inhibited by anthralin and increased by resveratrol.
