26446945 To test the associations of ASPN variations with risk of subsequent oncologic outcomes.
26016288 this is the first case-control study in Mexican women that suggests that menopause and the D-repeat polymorphism in the ASPN gene are associated with knee OA
25673058 Collectively, our findings indicate that ASPN is upregulated and plays an oncogenic role in gastric cancer progression and metastasis by influencing the EGFR signaling pathway.
25371314 Osteomodulin, osteoglycin, and asporin appear to be distinctly regulated in osteoarthritis labrum compared to OA cartilage.
25030405 Our results showed that ASPN rs13301537 T to C change and variant C genotype may contribute to knee OA risk in a Chinese Han population.
24453179 D14-PLAP-1 suppressed BMP-2 signal transduction more efficiently than D13-PLAP-1; stronger affinity of D14-PLAP-1 protein to BMP-2 compared with D13-PLAP-1 protein. D repeat polymorphism of PLAP-1/asporin has influence on functions of PDL cells.
24441039 Asporin may represent a new therapeutic target molecule for the development of drugs aimed at manipulating the cancer microenvironment.
24306268 This meta-analysis shows that the ASPN D14, D13, and D15 alleles are not associated with the development of osteoarthritis in Europeans and Asians. [Meta-Analysis]
24078942 Our data suggest that the D15 asporin allele could be considered a knee osteoarthritis risk allele significant only for women in the Iranian population.
24003854 The asporin-encoding gene is a promising candidate as a susceptibility gene for osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease. [Review]
