Uterus endometrial cancer (UEC) is the common malignancy among gynecologic cancers, and most of them are type I estrogen-dependent UEC. Diabetes is well-known risk factor for the development of UEC. However, the underlying link between high glucose (HG) and the estrogen receptor in UEC remains unclear. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has also been shown to occur during the initiation of metastasis in cancer progression. The aim of this study was to determine the relationships and roles of HG, estrogen receptor and EMT in the growth and migration of UEC.

Evidence from our and other groups has demonstrated that zinc transporter 7 in SLC30 family (ZnT7) inhibited epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and apoptosis in rat peritoneal mesothelial cell...
Genetic program regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition is activated at the early stages of embryogenesis. Abnormal karyotype of the embryo disrupts the fundamental process of epithelial-mesenchy...
Endometriosis is a benign gynecologic disorder, it presents with malignant characteristics, such as migration and invasion. Hypoxia has been implicated in triggering epithelial-mesenchymal transition ...
Lymph node metastasis is the primary cause of cancer-related death among patients with gastric cancer (GC), and cell division cycle 27 (CDC27) promotes the metastasis and epithelial-mesenchymal transi...
In epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, epithelial cells lose their features, acquiring a mesenchymal-like phenotype. Nm23-H1 protein relates to tumor cells' metastatic potential, its low expression ...

Progression of Renal Interstitial Fibrosis / Tubular Atrophy (IF/TA) According to Epithelial-mesenchymal Transition (EMT) and Immunosuppressive Regimen (Everolimus Based Versus CNI Based) in de Novo Renal Transplant Recipients
Recently, early biomarkers of renal interstitial fibrosis have been identified, amongst them de novo expression of vimentin by tubular epithelial cells, which is an intermediate filament, ...

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Aspirin could affect the number and subtype of circulating tumor cells of metastatic breast cancer and colorectal cancer.
Uterus transplantation: screening, in vitro fertilization [IVF] treatment to be able to freeze embryos, uterus transplantation, pregnancy and afterwards removal of the uterus.
Phenotypic changes of EPITHELIAL CELLS to MESENCHYME type, which increase cell mobility critical in many developmental processes such as NEURAL TUBE development. NEOPLASM METASTASIS and DISEASE PROGRESSION may also induce this transition.
A transcription factor characterized by N-terminal and C-terminal CYS2-HIS2 ZINC FINGERS separated by a homeobox. It represses the expression of E-CADHERIN to induce the EPITHELIAL-MESENCHYMAL TRANSITION. It also represses PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEINS C-BCL-6; regulates the cell type-specific expression of SODIUM-POTASSIUM-EXCHANGING ATPASE; and promotes neuronal differentiation.
The extension of endometrial tissue (ENDOMETRIUM) into the MYOMETRIUM. It usually occurs in women in their reproductive years and may result in a diffusely enlarged uterus with ectopic and benign endometrial glands and stroma.
Benign proliferation of the ENDOMETRIUM in the UTERUS. Endometrial hyperplasia is classified by its cytology and glandular tissue. There are simple, complex (adenomatous without atypia), and atypical hyperplasia representing also the ascending risk of becoming malignant.
A glucose transport protein found in mature MUSCLE CELLS and ADIPOCYTES. It promotes transport of glucose from the BLOOD into target TISSUES. The inactive form of the protein is localized in CYTOPLASMIC VESICLES. In response to INSULIN, it is translocated to the PLASMA MEMBRANE where it facilitates glucose uptake.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
