Disease relevance of KCNIP4

  • The common reactivity of malignant fibrous histiocytomas with CALP and HCD suggests a combination of myofibroblastic and smooth muscle differentiation in these tumors [1].
  • All of our 25 benign smooth muscle tumors from various locations were positive for CALP and HCD, as were most of the retroperitoneal and uterine leiomyosarcomas [1].
  • Although nonmuscle, nonmyofibroblastic tumors were negative for CALP and HCD, synovial sarcomas showed streaks of CALP-positive cells of unknown significance [1].
  • Significantly higher activities of BALP and LALP were found in dogs with epithelial neoplasms; whereas, only CALP activity was higher in dogs with mesenchymal/mixed neoplasms [2].
