Insulin receptor isoform A favors tumor progression in human hepatocellular carcinoma by increasing stem/progenitor cell features

from Cancer Letters

This study evaluated the biological functions associated with IR-A overexpression in HCC in relation to expression of its ligand IGF-II. The value of INSRA:INSRB ratio which was increased in ˜70% of 85 HCC was associated with stem/progenitor cell features such as cytokeratin-19 and α-fetoprotein and correlated with shorter patient survival. IGF2 mRNA upregulation was observed in 9.4% of HCC and was not associated with higher INSRA:INSRB ratios. more
