Sorry, no etymologies found.
In the present study we characterized the expression of the urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA), its cognate receptor (uPAR) and the uPA inhibitors PAI-1 and PAI-2 in normal human testis and seminomas.
Despite that relative few studies are available on the expression and function of the uPAS components in human seminomas.
We demonstrated the increased expression of uPA and uPAR in human seminomas with respect to normal testis tissues, which may be relevant in testicular cancer progression.
Most commonly there are Two types of testicular cancers -- seminomas, or slow growing cancer and non-seminomas, or fast growing cancer
Researchers found that older men were more likely to have the benign tumours, known as spermocytic seminomas, which although harmless on their own, potentially passed on genetic mutations to their sperm, thereby increasing the chances of their offspring have health problems including autism or schizophrenia.
TGCTs comprise two histologically distinct subtypes: seminomas and non-seminomas.
Quantitative RT-PCR analysis of 14 seminomas demonstrated that uPA and uPAR mRNAs were, with respect to control tissues, increased in tumor tissues by 3. 80+/-0.74 (p
