    Background Aquaporin 1 (AQP1) is a membrane protein whose main function is to transfer water via cellular membranes. Recent studies have described important roles for AQP1 in epithelial carcinogenesis and tumor behavior. The objectives of the present study were to investigate the role of AQP1 in...

    Background: Aquaporins (AQPs) are water channel proteins that facilitate transcellular water movements. Recent studies have shown that AQP5 is expressed in various cancers, and plays a role in tumor progression. However, its expression and role in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) have...

    Background Gastric carcinoma (GC) is a common and lethal malignancy, and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is believed to contribute to invasive and metastatic tumor growth. Aquaporin 3 (AQP3) is overexpressed in human GC tissues, while human epidermal growth factor (EGF) and hepatocyte...

    Background and objective Lung cancer is a major health problem worldwide. The aim of this study is to investigate aquaporin 3 (AQP3) expression and its relationship with the clinicopathologic characteristics of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Methods AQP3 expression and the microvascular...
