25611245 UPII, GATA3, and p40, when used in combination, are highly sensitive in the differential diagnosis of invasive urothelial carcinoma.
25449628 UPII was highly specific/moderately sensitive for urothelial carcinoma. May be a potentially useful marker to identify urothelial lineage and help distinguish UC from prostate cancer or, in conjunction with GATA3, from metastatic breast cancer.
25389341 UPII demonstrates a significantly higher sensitivity than UPIII in conventional and variant urothelial carcinomas
24978921 Uroplakin II antibody BC21 demonstrated superior sensitivity and specificity in urothelial carcinoma, compared with uroplakin III, suggesting an advantage in differential diagnosis of urothelial carcinoma and in the detection of tumors of unknown origin.
18440837 combination of prostate stem cell antigen enhancer and uroplakin II promoter is feasible in constructing bladder cancer-specific vectors
17012268 study offers no definitive support for uroplakin II mutations causing human renal tract malformations
