Title: TGF-β and TGFBI in upper gastrointesitinal cancers: Progress in the basic and clinical research.
Author: Takehiko Yokobori, and Masahiko Nishiyama
Affiliation: Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Oncology, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine,
Abstract: TGF-β superfamily proteins have many important biological function to regulate tissue differentiation, cell proliferation, and migration in both of normal cells and cancer cells. Many researchers have reported TGF-β signaling is associated with cancer progression and therapeutic resistance in several cancers. Similarly, representative TGF-β downstream gene TGFBI was focused as cancer promoter and/or tumor suppressor. In this study we review the basic and clinical research related to the TGF-β and TGFBI in gastrointestinal cancers, especially in gastric cancers and esophageal squamous cell carcinomas.
