    Background: The prognosis of most hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients is poor due to the high metastatic rate of the disease. Understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying HCC metastasis is extremely urgent. The role of CD24 and NDRG2 (N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2), a candidate...

    N-myc downstream-regulated gene 1 (NDRG1) has been reported to be a multifunctional protein associated with carcinogenesis and tumor progression. However, the cellular function of NDRG1 remains elusive in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). No NDRG1 expression is observed in normal liver...

    Recent studies have demonstrated that N-Myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (NDRG2) may reduce the metastatic potential of breast cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma cells by regulating the expression of CD24, which is expressed in a large variety of solid tumors. The aim of this study was to...

    An increasing number of studies have shown altered expression of secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) and N-myc down-regulated gene (NDRG1) in several malignancies, including breast carcinoma; however, the role of these potential biomarkers in tumor development and progression is...

    Background: Several studies have shown that NDRG2 mRNA is down-regulated or undetectable in various human cancers and cancer cell-lines. Although the function of NDRG2 is currently unknown, high NDRG2 expression correlates with improved prognosis in high-grade gliomas, gastric cancer and...

    Background: Numb is an evolutionary conserved protein that plays critical roles in cell fate determination, cell adhesion, cell migration and a number of signaling pathways, but evidence for a substantial involvement of Numb in HCC has remained unclear. The present study was aimed to investigate...

  • Low NDRG1 mRNA expression predicts a poor prognosis in neuroblastoma patients. Matsushita, Kohei; Uchida, Keiichi; Saigusa, Susumu; Ide, Shozo; Hashimoto, Kiyoshi; Koike, Yuhki; Otake, Kohei; Inoue, Mikihiro; Tanaka, Koji; Kusunoki, Masato // Pediatric Surgery International;Apr2013, Vol. 29 Issue 4, p363 

    Purpose: N-myc downstream regulated gene 1 (NDRG1) markedly reduces metastasis of numerous tumors. However, NDRG1's function in malignant tumors has not been fully determined. Therefore, we investigated the association of NDRG1 expression with clinical outcomes in neuroblastoma (NB) patients....
