26472188 The study provided a new insight into EMP3, suggesting that EMP3 enhances malignancy of hepatocellular carcinoma cells
26398721 EMP3 functions as an oncogene and is regulated by microRNA-765 in primary breast carcinoma.
24083241 The aim of this study was to investigate the EMP3 promoter hypermethylation status in a series of 229 astrocytic and oligodendroglial tumors and in 16 glioblastoma cell lines.
23920144 Decreased expression of EMP3 by promoter methylation is associated by lung cancer
22992787 LOH 19q determines the complete loss of EMP3 function, as the conserved allele is frequently hypermethylated, and this may represent the molecular basis of the higher risk of relapse in this subgroup of grade II oligodendroglioma patients.
20388442 The promoter methylation and mRNA expressions of EMP3 and PCDH-gamma-A11 are closely related with the malignant development of glioma.
19270820 Epithelial membrane protein 3 overexpression in breast carcinomas was significantly related to histological grade III , lymph node metastasis , and strong Her-2 expression.
18823699 Loss of EMP3 is associated with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
17610521 Oligodendroglial and astrocytic gliomas show EMP3 hypermethylation and aberrant expression. Primary and secondary glioblastomas have distinct genetic profiles and also differ in their epigenetic aberrations.
17187361 EMP3 overexpression is associated with oligodendroglial tumors
16015083 The five genes, and three of the encoded proteins, were shown differentially expressed between a group of keratoconus patients and a reference group using different techniques
15583422 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
