Such a pro-apoptotic effect has not been observed in other heterologous systems overexpressing mouse or rat prominin-2 [5, 18], although it was not specifically addressed in these studies, and should therefore be considered with caution until confirmation. 3 Prominin-2 and Cancer Data regarding the expression of prominin-2 in cancer are scarce and preliminary. Expressed sequence tag clones deposited in the GenBank database indicate that prominin-2 may be expressed in tumors of the breast, lung, tongue, and nervous system [5] (data not shown).
