Description…

The Golgi complex plays a key role in the sorting and modification of proteins exported from the endoplasmic reticulum. GP73 is a type II Golgi transmembrane protein. It processes proteins synthesized in the rough endoplasmic reticulum and assists in the transport of protein cargo through the Golgi apparatus. The expression of the GP73 gene has been observed to be upregulated in response to viral infection. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been described for this gene. Kladeny, RD. et al. 2000, found significant up-regulation of GOLPH2 expression in human hepatocyte cells infected with a recombinant adenovirus. EDRN investigator Block, TM et al. 2005, found that GP73 over-expression in serum correlate with liver cancer in woodchucks and humans. Chinnayian's lab reported that GP73 transcript was over-expressed in prostate cancer patients urine sediment (Laxman B. et al. 2008).

Organs

The following organs have data associated with this biomarker…

Liver

Attributes

Phase: Two
QA State: Under Review

Overview

Golgi protein-73 (GP73) is up-regulated in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Performance Comment

GP73 is used together with AFP-L3 in China for monitoring/risk assessment of cirrhotic patients for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Prostate

Attributes

Phase: Two
QA State: Under Review

Overview

GOLPH2 protein is highly expressed in seminomas and in Leydig cell tumours.

Performance Comment

Increased GOLPH2 (GP73) transcript expression can be a predictor of prostate cancer. A multiplexed model including seven biomarkers (AMACR, ERG, GOLPH2, PCA3, SPINK1, TFF3, TMPRSS2:ERG) outperforms serum PSA or PCA3 alone.
