Tissue Levels of Stefin A and Stefin B in Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
Putian, China. In Anat Rec (hoboken), Feb 2016
In this study, the protein levels of stefin A and stefin B were assessed by immunohistochemical staining, and the mRNA levels were quantified by real-time polymerase chain reaction in 85 primary HCC tissues, 85 surrounding non-cancerous tissues, and 9 normal hepatic tissues.
Novel expression of CST1 as candidate senescence marker.
Vallejo, United States. In J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci, 2011
CST1 expression at both the messenger RNA and protein levels was barely detected in control cells, which included early passage proliferating, quiescent, or immortal human fibroblasts
Cystatins: a versatile family.
In Biomol Concepts, 2011
Cystatins are small proteins, typically composed of 100-120 amino acids, which together with similar proteins devoid of inhibitory properties, belong to a cystatin 'superfamily'.
