psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:ECRG4 Antibody: The esophageal cancer-related gene 4 (ECRG4), also known as Augurin, was identified through differential display screening between esophageal cancer and normal tissue. Hypermethylation of CpG sites in the ECRG4 promoter correlate with ECRG4 downregulation in numerous esophageal squamous cell carcinoma tissues.. In transfected cells, overexpression of ECRG4 induced G1 arrest, dephosphorylation of Rb and decreased expression of cyclins D1 and D3. Increased expression of ECRG4 in aged mouse brain is observed compared with young mouse brain. The increased ECRG4 level was accompanied by elevated senescence-associated acidic beta-galactosidase activity, suggesting that ECRG4 is involved in cellular differentiation and senescence.
