Abstract

Objective: Kidney cancer is a type of cancer that includes different histology subgroups, and the number of kidney cancer cases is expected to increase. It has been found that the junctional adhesion molecule A (JAM-A) as a transmembrane glycoprotein is associated with cancer characteristics such as invasion, metastasis, and poor prognosis. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the effect of gene variations in JAM-A and its ligand lymphocyte function-related antigen-1 (LFA-1) on kidney cancer.
