PURPOSE: A multifunctional protein known as Osteopontin (OPN) has an important, yet poorly understood role in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) pathogenesis. OPN was reported to be associated with the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of cells, promoting tumor cells metastasis, but its mechanism remains unclear.
