锌指蛋白36(Tristetraprolin, TTP)作为最常见的ARE结合蛋白，通过控制mRNA 3’非翻译区的ARE元件活性来影响mRNA的稳定以及蛋白质的表达。近来研究发现，TTP与多种临床常见癌症如乳腺癌、结肠癌和宫颈癌的增殖、侵袭、转移和预后密切相关。因此作一综述，希望能通过对TTP的研究，有助于对常见癌症的病理诊断以及治疗。
Tristetraprolin and Cancer
Tristetraprolin(TTP),a common kind of binding protein with AU-rich elements (AREs),effects on the mRNA stability and the protein expres-sion by regulating the activity of AREs on 3`-untranslated region of mRNA . The recent study has showed that TTP is closely related with the proliferation, invasion, metastasis and prognosis of different kinds of cancer, such as breast cancer, colon cancer, cervical cancer, and so on. Therefore, the review has been written to help the different kinds of cancer on the pathological diagnosis and treatment through a further study of TTP.
