CD44 (12-0441-81, eBioscience, USA) and CD73 (550257, BDBioscience, USA) were considered as mesenchymal stem cells markers and, CD45 (341071, BDbioscience, USA) and CD11b (110112-41, eBioscience, USA) as hematopoietic and macrophage markers.
Fluorescent reporter assays proved that CD44 acts as the target spot of micro ribonucleic acid 34-a for repression in post-transcription level.
The objective of the study was to determine the correlation between the non-invasive measurement of tumor aggressiveness via TIFP using DCE-MRI and immunohistochemical (IHC) staining CD44 expression.

It is considered that CD44 is involved in cell adhesion, cell activation, regulation of tumor growth, and apoptosis.
Based on our comparison of the metabolic profiles of human tissues and cancer cells, we suggest that curcumin might couple with CD44 and that curcumin-CD44() coupling at the cell membrane might have some blocking effect on the transport of glutamine into the cells, thus decreasing the glutamine content in the CD44() cells and inducing apoptosis.
Also reported was a large inverted component, the presence of small nests of urothelial cells in the stalk, and the strong staining for CK5 and CD44.
