    Naoko Nukumi
    Laboratory of Applied Genetics, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo 113 8657, Japan
    Dev Biol 274:31-44. 2004
    ..The present results provide the first documented evidence that WAP plays a negative regulatory role in the cell cycle progression of mammary epithelial cells through an autocrine or paracrine mechanism in vivo...
  2. ncbi Reduction of tumorigenesis and invasion of human breast cancer cells by whey acidic protein (WAP)
    Naoko Nukumi
    Laboratory of Applied Genetics, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, 1 1 1 Yayoi, Bunkyo ku, Tokyo, 113 8657, Japan
    Cancer Lett 252:65-74. 2007
    ..These data suggest that WAP has a protease-inhibitory function on the progression of breast cancer cells. It is therefore possible to utilize WAP as therapeutic protein against tumorigenesis of breast cancer...

    Naoko Nukumi
    Laboratory of Applied Genetics, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo, Bunkyo ku, Tokyo, Japan
    J Cell Physiol 213:793-800. 2007
    ..We concluded that WAP plays some role in regulating the proliferation of mammary epithelial cells by preventing elastase-type serine protease from carrying out laminin degradation and thereby suppressing the MAP kinase signal pathway...
