- IL-33 Promotes Gastric Cancer Cell Invasion and Migration Via ST2-ERK1/2 Pathway. Yu, Xi-Xiang; Hu, Zhe; Shen, Xian; Dong, Li-Yang; Zhou, Wei-Zhong; Hu, Wen-Hao // Digestive Diseases & Sciences;May2015, Vol. 60 Issue 5, p1265
Background: As a pro-inflammatory cytokine, IL-33 has been demonstrated to play an important role in tumor progression. It is reported that IL-33 is highly expressed in the serum and tumor tissues of patients with gastric cancer. However, the function of IL-33 in gastric cancer remains elusive....
