A Unique Family of Neuronal Signaling Proteins Implicated in Oncogenesis and Tumor Suppression

A Unique Family of Neuronal Signaling Proteins Implicated in Oncogenesis and Tumor Suppression Markus Hartl* and Rainer Schneider Center of Molecular Biosciences (CMBI), Institute of Biochemistry, University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria The neuronal proteins GAP43 (neuromodulin), MARCKS, and BASP1 are highly expressed in the growth cones of nerve cells where they are involved in signal transmission and cytoskeleton organization. Although their primary structures are unrelated, these signaling proteins share several structural properties like fatty acid modification, and the presence of cationic effector domains. GAP43, MARCKS, and BASP1 bind to cell membrane phospholipids, a process reversibly regulated by protein kinase C-phosphorylation or by binding to the calcium sensor calmodulin (CaM). GAP43, MARCKS, and BASP1 are also expressed in non-neuronal cells, where they may have important functions to manage cytoskeleton architecture, and in case of MARCKS and BASP1 to act as cofactors in transcriptional regulation. During neoplastic cell transformation, the proteins reveal differential expression in normal vs. tumor cells, and display intrinsic tumor promoting or tumor suppressive activities. Whereas GAP43 and MARCKS are oncogenic, tumor suppressive functions have been ascribed to BASP1 and in part to MARCKS depending on the cell type. Like MARCKS, the myristoylated BASP1 protein is localized both in the cytoplasm and in the cell nucleus. Nuclear BASP1 participate...

Hey i wanted to know if its ok to take the requisites at a commuity college, i took bio 1 and 2 with labs and chemestry 1 and lab, so far i have 46 credits but will have 50 this summer because i am taking chem 2 with lab. planning on doing organic chemestry 1 with lab , trigonometry . for spring organic chemstry 2 with lab , calculus. Not sure if I should take physics there too.

If several side effects on short and long term are well known and described, their involvement in the development of carotid stenosis remains unclear. Here, we describe a case of carotid stenosis in a patient receiving tyrosine kinase inhibitors and discuss the current literature.

The blood smear of patients with aCML showed prominent immature granulocytosis, and granulocytic dysplasia. We admitted a 58-year-old man with splenomegaly, hyperleukocytosis, anemia, and thrombocytopenia; then cytology, cytogenetic and molecular biology analysis of bone m...

ConclusionIn this study, no significant association was observed between visceral obesity and the number of metastatic lymph node, nor with survival at 5 and 10 years.ResumoIntroduçãoA presença de metastização ganglionar no câncer colorretal é determinante como fator de prognóstico e para planear o tratamento. A relação entre a presença de gordura visceral e o prognóstico não está totalmente documentada na literatura. Assim, pretende-se avaliar a existência de relação entre obesidade visceral e a presen&cced...
