26649804 This novel nuclear localization of TM4SF3 depends on androgen-induced nuclear localization of androgen receptor (AR) in both androgen-dependent and androgen-independent prostate cancer cell lines
26562525 Our data suggest that TSPAN8-LEL may play an important role in mCRC cell invasion, and that the antibody we have developed could be a useful tool for inhibiting the invasion of TSPAN8-expressing mCRCs.
25680464 Tspn8 was over-expressed in multiple clinical malignant glioma tissues, and its expression level correlated with the grade of tumors.
25261323 Based on nasopharyngeal TSPAN8 gene expression in readily available Nasopharyngeal aspirate samples , we can discriminate between severity of disease in Respiratory syncytial virus infected infants.
22679508 CO-029 functions as a regulator of both cell-matrix and cell-cell adhesion. During colon cancer progression, CO-029 promotes cancer cell movement by deregulating cell adhesions.
21081927 High TSPAN8 is associated with melanoma invasiveness.
20937409 PMA-induced Tspan8-internalization promotes cell migration, but reduces matrix and cell adhesion.
