sup][6] Furthermore, the result of KEGG pathway analysis showed that genes in GST differentially expressed are involved in pathways related to carbon metabolism, amino acid biosynthesis, and cell adhesion have differential gene expression, indicating that involved substance metabolism and intercellular adhesion can promote cell growth and eventually tumor genesis; for those pathways that are closely related to tumor genesis, such as Rap1 signal pathway, sulfur ester acyl inositol signal system, Ras signal pathway, and P13K-ART signal pathway, the involved genes are also expressed differentially, suggesting that the genesis of GST has activated a number of tumor-related pathways that regulate the genesis and development of GST.
