Higher plasma levels of COL10A1 were detected in patients (p = 0.001), a difference that was driven specifically by females (p < 0.001). No difference in COL11A1 levels between patients and controls was found

SPARC is closely related to the development of breast cancer and can be used as a tumor marker for breast cancer recurrence.
SPARC expression was inversely associated with the degree of malignancy and it had a negative correlation with VEGF-C and VEGF-D expression. Results suggest SPARC might function as a tumor suppressor inhibiting angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis in ovarian cancer by reducing the expression of VEGF-C and VEGF-D.
SPARC may be involved in gastric cancer metastasis by effecting on tumor microenvironment

The epicardial adipose tissue expresses the mRNA of osteopontin, osteoprotegerin, and osteonectin genes that have been implicated in the calcification process; such expression is statistically associated with some components of HDL subclasses in coronary artery disease patients.
detection of SPARC mRNA and protein expression levels may facilitate early diagnosis and prognosis assessment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
SPARC rs17718347 and rs2347128 single nucleotide polymorphisms are associated with progression-free survival in locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic cancer patients.
results demonstrated that loss of miR-211 expression and thus uncontrolled SPARC overexpression might drive progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which may provide a novel therapeutic strategy for the treatment of HCC.
Data suggest that plasma SPARC levels may be biomarker for vascular complications among Chinese type 2 diabetic patients; patients in lowest SPARC tertile have increased odds of aortic stiffness but reduced odds of peripheral arterial disease.
The profiled circulating tumour cells also expressed elevated levels of stem cell markers, and the extracellular matrix protein, SPARC. The expression of SPARC might correspond to an epithelial-mesenchymal transition in pancreatic circulating tumour cells
The application of the combined siRNAs of SPARC, CCR2, and SMAD3 genes ameliorated inflammation and fibrosis in bleomycin-induced mice. It systemically reinstated multiple biopathways, probably through controlling on different cell types including fibroblasts, monocytes/macrophages, endothelial cells and others.
It is a matricellular glycol that regulates cell proliferation, tissue repair, and tumorigenesis and a potential therapeutic target for conditions involving intestinal inflammation.
Sparc levels in tendons are critical for proper collagen fibril maturation.
miR-29 directly targeted SPARC, resulting in degradation of SPARC-encoding mRNA and reduction in the SPARC protein level.
SPARC plays a crucial role in the proliferation and differentiation of C2C12 and may be involved in the link between the ECM remodeling and mitochondrial func
SPARC is regulating the interplay between myeloid-derived suppressor cells and the extracellular matrix to drive the induction of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in tumor cells.
The results demonstrate for the first time a functional role of the N-propeptide in regulating collagen fiber assembly and cell behavior and suggest that SPARC and the N-propeptide of collagen I have distinct activities in regulating collagen fiber assembly and fibroblast function.
SPARC plays a key role in influencing the spatial organization of the anterior segment, potentially via modulation of collagen properties, while Hevin is not likely to be involved.
An ADAMTS1 blocking antibody suppressed the SPARC-induced collagen I secretion, indicating that SPARC promoted collagen production directly through ADAMTS1 interaction. In conclusion, ADAMTS1 is an important mediator of SPARC-regulated cardiac aging.
SPARC appears to be an important modulator of the actin cytoskeleton, implicating maintenance of muscular function

Tumor-produced SPARC and VCAM1 are regulators of cancer extravasation.

This gene encodes a cysteine-rich acidic matrix-associated protein. The encoded protein is required for the collagen in bone to become calcified but is also involved in extracellular matrix synthesis and promotion of changes to cell shape. The gene product has been associated with tumor suppression but has also been correlated with metastasis based on changes to cell shape which can promote tumor cell invasion.
