Hepatic and glial cell adhesion molecule

Cancer susceptibility, hepaCAM
The protein encoded by this gene is a single-pass type I membrane protein that localizes to the cytoplasmic side of the cell membrane. The encoded protein acts as a homodimer and is involved in cell motility and cell-matrix interactions. The expression of this gene is downregulated or undetectable in many cancer cell lines, so this may be a tumor suppressor gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011] (from NCBI)

Exploration of the correlations between interferon-γ in patient serum and HEPACAM in bladder transitional cell carcinoma, and the interferon-γ mechanism inhibiting BIU-87 proliferation.
GeneRIF
Zhang et al., Anqing, China. In J Urol, 2012
Results suggest an important connection between HEPACAM and interferon-gamma, which may inhibit BIU-87 proliferation through HEPACAM re-expression and p21(WAF1) up-regulation to arrest cells at the G(0)/G(1) phase
HepaCAM induces G1 phase arrest and promotes c-Myc degradation in human renal cell carcinoma.
GeneRIF
Shen et al., Chongqing, China. In J Cell Biochem, 2011
Research implies that the decrease in c-Myc protein expression, resulting from ectopic expression of hepaCAM, may contribute to the inhibition of proliferation in these cells.
