The role of C-terminal tensin-like (Cten) gene in cancer metastasis

Saleh Alghamdi, Sarah Alkwai, Mohammad Ilyas.

Abstract
C-terminal tensin-like (cten, also known as tensin4, TNS4) is the fourth member of the tensin family. all tensin family members localizes in focal adhesion sites. Cten shares the sequence homology with other tensins at its C-terminal region by having the SH2 and PTB domains. Cten is expressed in some normal tissue such as prostate and placenta while down-regulated in prostate cancer. The overexpression of cten was found associates with tumors of breast, colon, lung, stomach, skin and pancreas. It interacts with growth factors and cytokines as regulators. Also it has been found that cten expression promotes cell motility and enhances tumorigenicity. The collective findings support that cten is having a role in carcinogenesis and promising biomarker. It can be a candidate for a therapeutic target for solid cancers.

Key words: Cten, colorectal cancer, tensin, metastasis
