Gankyrin Plays an Essential Role in Estrogen-Driven and GPR30-mediated Endometrial Carcinoma Cell Proliferation via the PTEN/PI3K/AKT Signaling Pathway

Abstract

Gankyrin has been implicated in the formation of multiple cancer types, although its roles in estrogen-driven endometrial carcinoma remain unclarified. We evaluated the expression of Gankyrin in endometrial tissues and further explored its roles in estrogen-driven and GPR30-mediated endometrial cancer cell proliferation. Gankyrin was overexpressed in endometrial carcinoma tissues and showed an inverse relationship with the pattern of PTEN expression. The depletion or overexpression of Gankyrin induced endometrial cancer cell proliferation inhibition or expansion, respectively, which was associated with estrogen-driven GPR30 signaling via the PTEN/PI3K/AKT pathway. This study suggests that Gankyrin is functional in endometrial cancer development.
