Gene RIF (16)

26876307 Data show that loss of epithelial membrane protein 2 (EMP2) is involved in sphingosylphosphorylcholine (SPC)-induced phosphorylation of keratin 8 (K8) via ubiquitination of protein phosphatase 2 (PP2A) through alpha4 phosphoprotein by caveolin-1 (cav-1).
25940704 EMP2 plays a tumor suppressor role by inducing G2/M cell cycle arrest, suppressing cell viability, proliferation, colony formation/ anchorage-independent cell growth via regulation of G2/M checkpoints in distinct-derived cell lines.
25684502 Loss of EMP2 is associated with nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
24814193 We showed that knockdown of EMP2 in podocytes and endothelial cells resulted in an increased amount of CAVEOLIN-1 and decreased cell proliferation, so EMP2 mutations causes a recessive Mendelian form of steroid-sensitive nephrotic syndrome.

23838430 EMP2 was identified as a tumor-suppressor gene in urinary tract urothelial carcinoma.
23334331 support the role of EMP2 in the control of the tumor microenvironment and confirm the cytotoxic effects observed by EMP2 treatment in vivo
21637765 Manipulation of EMP2 levels in endometrial cancer cells regulates the phosphorylation of FAK and Src, and promotes their distribution into lipid raft domains.
20670949 EMP2 is expressed in the majority of ovarian tumors and may be a feasible target in vivo.
19010852 EMP2 may be a potential pharmacologic target for human endometrial cancer.
