26669866 Results establish PLAC8 as a central mediator of tumor progression in PDAC.
25720387 Methylation status of 17 CpG sites in PLAC8 negatively correlated with mRNA expression
24794439 Plac8 provides a mechanistic link between primary oncogenic mutations and the induction of autophagy, a central mechanism of metabolic reprogramming, during PDA progression.
24691442 Excess PLAC8 promotes an unconventional ERK2-dependent EMT in colon cancer.
23708710 expression of retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) and placenta-specific 8 increased in the bone tumors of PC3-GFP/PC3-OPG-injected mice. Knockdown of both RBP4 and PLAC8 by siRNA inhibited the growth of PC-3 cells in vitro.
22920440 Data suggest that overexpression of PLAC8 induces apoptosis in some cells (CEM-C7 cells; Jurkat T cells); expression of PLAC8 has anti-apoptosis effect in other cells (adherent cell lines; HEK293T cells; MCF-10A cells).
20072156 phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate(PMA)downregulates onzin expression through PKCepsilon-ERK2 signaling pathway, which favors monocytic differentiation of leukemic cells.
