Abstract

Abstract We have previously demonstrated that Annexin A7 is involved in the lymphatic metastasis of hepatocarcinoma in vitro. The expression of Galectin-3 and Gelsolin, which were also relevant to tumor lymphatic metastasis, had shown the same tendency concordantly with the expression of Annexin A7 alteration by qRT-PCR and Western blot analysis. Here, we gain an insight into the role that Annexin A7 is playing in Hca-P, PAnxa7-upregulated and PAnxa7-downregulated cells in vivo. Then, Hca-P, PAnxa7-upregulated and PAnxa7-downregulated cells were injected into a mouse footpad to establish primary tumors in mice. On the fourth week after HCC cells inoculation, the mice were sacrificed for inspection the expression of Annexin A7, Galectin-3 and Gelsolin in primary tumors and in serum. Our work indicates that Annexin A7 and Gelsolin are both valuable in tumors and in serum evaluating lymph node metastasis in mice with hepatocarcinoma; Galectin-3 in tumors is significant but no much contribution in serum.
