Decreased Expression of the Epithelial Ca2+ Channel TRPV5 and TRPV6 in Human Renal Cell Carcinoma Associated With Vitamin D Receptor
The Journal of Urology, 11/23/2011
Wu Y et al. – Decreased TRPV5/V6 expression was noted in renal cell carcinoma, which correlated with vitamin D receptor. Different expression was also detected among the different renal cell carcinoma histopathological subtypes. The observations suggest that altered vitamin D receptor expression may be associated with renal cell carcinoma carcinogenesis via TRPV5/6.
