Disease relevance of TSPAN13


High impact information on TSPAN13

  • In addition, NET-6 was markedly down-regulated in estrogen receptor-negative breast cancers, and expression was lowest in "basal-like" tumors [1].
  • NET-6 levels were lower in HER2-negative breast carcinoma cells [1].
  • The NET-6 gene was transfected into a low-expressing cell line, and the effect on cellular morphology, growth, and invasion in vitro was recorded [1].
  • The expression levels of NET-6 and TROP-2 were determined by quantitative reverse transcription-PCR in a subset of frozen tumors [1].

Other interactions of TSPAN13

  • NET-6 levels were decreased in estrogen receptor-negative and high-grade tumors, and ectopic expression of this gene had an inhibitory effect on proliferation and invasion [1].
