19487278 Cten is a novel nuclear partner of beta-catenin, and has an oncogenic activity in colon cancers.
19194507 Tensins may represent a novel group of metastasis suppressors in the kidney, the loss of which leads to greater tumor cell motility and consequent metastasis.
18612693 TNS4 mRNA expression was significantly higher in gastric cancer.
17765673 Expression of CTEN correlates with high tumor grade and metastasis to lymph nodes, suggesting that CTEN may contribute to tumor invasiveness.
