    basic FUNCTION
  • might be a growth inhibitory protein and associated with decreasing the invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma cells
  • essential for lysosomal sorting of EGF receptors and required for downregulation of the epidermal growth
  • factor receptor via degradation
  • an independent predictor for postoperative disease-free survival in hepatocellular carcinoma patients
  • a possible novel predictive marker for ovarian cancer

    Marker
  • low HCRP1 expression was found to be of adverse prognostic significance in patients with oral and oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma
  • Therapy target
    ANIMAL & CELL MODELS
  • overexpression of HCRP1 (Vps37A) significantly inhibited both anchorage-dependent and anchorage-independent cell growth in vitro
  • knock down of the expression of HCRP1 gene by shRNA in hepatocellular carcinoma cell line BEL-7404 result in the cell growth greatly enhanced
  • Vps37A morpholino-injected zebrafish showed striking and significant loss of motility
