27036110 Overexpression of PRSS8 mRNA and high levels of prostasin in multiple subtypes of early stage ovarian tumors may provide clinical biomarkers for early detection of ovarian cancer.
26867056 It is concluded that prostasin protein level change is less likely to be causally involved in placental dysfunction in preeclampsia.
26252104 Polymorphism of the prostasin gene is closely associated with poor pregnancy outcomes of early-onset severe preeclampsia.
25931204 In urinary exosomes, NCC and prostasin had a diurnal pattern parallel to ADH and aquaporin 2, confirming that, in healthy subjects, both prostasin and NCC relate to water balance.
25188517 Prostasin regulate the Lin28/Let-7 loop in ovarian cancer cells.
24890150 The higher frequency of C allele of prostasin gene at rs12597511 is associated with severe preeclampsia.
24434518 Prostasin repress cancer cells and contribute to chemoresistance by modulating the CASP/PAK2-p34/actin pathway.
23707658 Our study suggested that Axl and prostasin expression may be closely related to carcinogenesis, metastasis, and prognosis of ovarian adenocarcinoma.
23673661 prostasin is a non-enzymatic co-factor for matriptase activation
23443662 Prostasin requires expression of endogenous matriptase to stimulate barrier formation since matriptase depletion by siRNA silencing abrogates prostasin barrier-forming activity.
