Sonic Hedgehog Pathway as the Prognostic Marker in Patients with Extensive Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer.

CONCLUSION: A high proportion of small cell lung cancer tumors express proteins related to Shh pathway, and over-expression of Shh is correlated with poor prognosis. PMID: 31538424 [PubMed - in process]

Novotny, Bing Peng, Liangli Yu, Pei ChenAbstractBroccoli is a popular brassica vegetable and its consumption may decrease the occurrence of cancer in certain populations. To gain insight into the metabolites that may induce physiological responses to broccoli intake, a non-targeted metabolomic approach and a targeted approach for analysis of glucosinolate metabolites were developed using high resolution accurate mass spectrometry. A human study was conducted in which 6 subjects consumed a single meal ...

Publication date: Available online 13 October 2019Source: Advances in Biological RegulationAuthor(s): Veronica Balatti, Carlo M. CroceAbstractWe established that loss of miR-15a/16–1 genes on chromosome 13q14 is the most common alteration in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and that miR-15/16 are crucial negative regulator of BCL-2, an antiapoptotic gene overexpressed in most CLLs and in many other malignancies. We have also shown that miR-15/16 target ROR1, a cell surface receptor for Wnt5a which can enhance growth/survival of CLL cells. Interestingly, ROR1 is expressed by many cancers, but not by normal adult tis...

The combination of chemotherapy and other therapies would be a promising therapy strategy. Photothermal therapy (PTT) does not cause serious side effects and has dual control of time and space, which was considered to be a good method for combination with chemotherapy. Here, we modified multifunctional nanosheets based on in-situ gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) grown molybdenum disulfide...

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 regulate...

Conclusions: Our findings suggested that abnormal activation of the Hh signaling pathway is closely related to autophagy in SCLC. We envision that novel targets may come with the further investigation of Gli-1 and Cav-1 in carcinogenesis of SCLC. PMID: 29479989 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Genome wide methylation, mRNA expression, and detailed proteomic analyses have identified specific epigenic differences between SCLC and NSCLC that impact on important signaling pathways including widespread loss of PTEN function and receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) expression in SCLCs which need to be considered in developing new rationale therapies for SCLC.Citation Format: Seema Mukherjee, Bonnie S. Glisson, John D. Minna, Robert J. Cardnell, Luc Girard, Adi Gazdar, Lixia Diao, Jing Wang, Lauren A. Byers. Characterization of methylation profiles reveals distinct epigenomic patterns in SCLC and NSCLC. [abstrac...
