Chemoresistance is the major contributor to the low survival of pancreatic cancer (PC). PC progression is a complex process reliant on interactions between tumour and tumour microenvironment (TME). A family of structurally similar inflammatory chemokines, namely CXC ligands (CXCLs), were recently discovered to play important roles in various cancer types, including PC. This thesis aimed to investigate the role of CXCL5 in chemoresistance of PC. In both human and mice PC cell lines tested, CXCL5 expression was dramatically upregulated. The expressions of CXCL5, CXCL10 and selected CSC genes were various in gemcitabine resistant cell lines, and gemcitabine treated cells. However, in mo..
