26872154 Children with low 25-hydroxyvitamin D and TMEM16J rs7111432-AA or PKP3 rs10902158-GG polymorphisms were at increased risk for tuberculosis or death.
25972099 Data suggest juxtamembrane regions/domains of desmocollin-2 (DSC2), plakophilin 2 (PKP2), and plakophilin 3 (PKP3) are involved in desmosome formation in epithelial cells; DSC2 participates in desmosome formation in absence of desmoglein 2 (DSG2).
25875355 The results suggest that MMP7 over-expression may be one of the mechanisms by which PKP3 loss leads to increased cell invasion and tumor formation.

25225333 cytoplasmic PKP1/3 are components of mRNA ribonucleoprotein particles and act as posttranscriptional regulators of gene expression.
25208567 These findings reveal Pkp3 as a coordinator of desmosome and adherens junction assembly and maturation through its functional association with Rap1.
24328683 Pemphigus vulgaris autoimmune globulin induces Src-dependent tyrosine-phosphorylation of PKP3 and its detachment from DSG3.
24178805 The study describes a new protein variant of the human PKP3 gene, namely PKP3b, which differs from the published PKP3a only at the amino-terminus by the splicing in of the newly identified exon 1b.
24124604 stratifin plays a role in regulating plakophilin-3 incorporation into the desmosomal plaque by forming a plakophilin-3 stratifin complex in the cytosol and thereby affecting desmosome dynamics in squamous epithelial cells.
22701666 Plakophilin3 loss leads to an increase in PRL3 levels promoting K8 dephosphorylation, which is required for transformation and metastasis.
22223854 These results demonstrate a strong association of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the PKP3-SIGIRR-TMEM16J gene region and tuberculosis in discovery and validation cohorts.
21947748 In breast cancer, compared with normal tissue, PKP1 and PKP2 expressions were indifferent (P > 0.05), but PKP3 expression was significantly increased
21194493 loss of PKP3 expression during gastric adenocarcinoma progression may indicate an invasive phenotype.
20859650 plakoglobin and E-cadherin recruit plakophilin3 to the cell border to initiate desmosome formation
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
20501752 PKP3 mRNA can be used as a marker of subclinical disease in gastrointestinal cancer and thus holds potential clinical relevance as a predictor for disease outcome
20348237 both loss of PKP1 and up-regulation of PKP3 expression are biologically important events in prostate cancer and are associated with a more aggressive phenotype
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18801625 qRT-PCR assay targeted to plakophilin 3 and anterior gradient-2 mRNAs might be helpful to detect circulating tumor cells in patients with gastrointestinal cancer.
18729189 plakophilin3 loss leads to a decrease in cell-cell adhesion leading to the stimulation of neoplastic progression and metastasis
17391671 The transcriptional repression of PKP3 by ZEB1 contributes to ZEB1-mediated disintegration of intercellular adhesion and epithelial to mesenchymal transition.
16407409 Cytoplasmic PKP3 is constitutively associated with RNA-binding proteins and indicate an involvement in processes of translation and RNA metabolism.
12707304 PKP3, whose desmosomal expression and protein interactions are broader than those of PKP1 and -2, is a unique multiprotein binding element in many epithelial desmosomes.
