Upregulated expression of CAP1 is associated with tumor migration and metastasis in hepatocellular carcinoma.

“Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers that exhibits high incidences of intrahepatic metastasis and tumor recurrence.

Adenylate cyclase-associated protein 1 (CAP1)… was recently reported to play a role in cell motility and the pathology of pancreatic cancer. In this study, we examined a potential role of CAP1 in HCC progression, and found that CAP1 was overexpressed in HCC specimens…

Collectively, our results indicated that upregulated expression of CAP1 might contribute heavily to the metastasis of HCC.”
