Selective Regulation of B-Raf Dependent K-Ras/Mitogen-Activated Protein by Natural Occurring Multi-kinase Inhibitors in Cancer Cells

Conclusion: The current data provide novel and natural multi-kinase inhibitors with competitive regulation of the mutant proteins; K-Ras and B-Raf and sustained MAPK signaling without any detectable toxic effect in normal cells.

Prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains poor despite significant recent improvement in therapy. Recent studies have reported that transglutaminase 3 (TGM3) plays an important role in several human cancer types. However, the role of TGM3 in HCC have not been previously elucidated.

Conclusions: These data outline either HIF-2α and NEDDylation as two novel putative therapeutic targets to interfere with the procarcinogenic role of SerpinB3 in the development of HCC.

Conclusion: The metastatic pathway of HCC seems to be related to the Wnt- or, rather, TGFβ1-mediated inflammation-angiogenesis-EMT-CSCs crosstalk link. Molecular therapy should target this molecular axis controlling the HCC microenvironment. PMID: 31781608 [PubMed - in process]

Forkhead box G1 (FOXG1) is a member of the Fox transcription factor family involved in regulation of many cancers. However, the role of FOXG1 in hepatocellular carcinogenesisis largely unclear. The present stu...

Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary malignant tumor in the liver and the second leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. The collaborative function between Nucleostemin (NS) and STAT3 has been reported but not well studied in HCC. Here, we found a significant correlation between NS expression and STAT3 phosphorylation, not only in HCC cancers but also in HCC tissues. Patients with high expression of both NS and p-STAT3 show a very poor survival rate. High expression of both NS and p-STAT3 is also associated with tumor size and microvascular invasion. Knocking down the express...

Abstract microRNA-485-5p (miR-485-5p) has been shown to act as a tumor-suppressor gene in some cancers, such as ovarian epithelial tumors and oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma. However, with regard to the anti-tumor role of miR-485-5p in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), evidence is unexpectedly limited. In the present study, we investigated the expression and the role of miR-485-5p in the progression of HCC. Microarray analysis revealed that miR-485-5p was downregulated and WBP2 was upregulated in HCC, which was consistent with RT-qPCR and immunohistochemistry assays in the HCC tissues we collected. A negative co...

Verstegen Primary liver cancer, consisting predominantly of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CCA), remains one of the most lethal malignancies worldwide. This high malignancy is related to the complex and dynamic interactions between tumour cells, stromal cells and the extracellular environment. Novel in vitro models that can recapitulate the tumour are essential in increasing our understanding of liver cancer. Herein, primary liver cancer-derived organoids have opened up new avenues due to their patient-specificity, self-organizing ability and potential recapitulation of many of the tumour prope...

Authors: Pretzsch E, Bösch F, Neumann J, Ganschow P, Bazhin A, Guba M, Werner J, Angele M Abstract Metastasis is the major cause of death in patients with colorectal carcinoma (CRC). The most common sites of metastasis are the liver and the peritoneum. Peritoneal carcinomatosis is often considered the end stage of the disease after the tumor has spread to the liver. However, almost half of CRC patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis do not present with liver metastasis. This brings up the question of whether peritoneal spread can still be considered as the end stage of a metastasized CRC or whether it should j...

Abstract Over the past decades, studies of phytochemicals as modifiers of radiotherapeutic efficacy have become increasingly popular to improve the treatment outcome of human malignancies. In the current comprehensive review article, radiosensitizing effects of curcumin, a yellow-colored polyphenolic constituent of turmeric, in various preclinical cancer models, both In Vitro and In Vivo, are presented. Attenuation of radioadaptation and augmentation of irradiation-induced cancer cell killing are achieved through multifaceted action of curcumin on suppression of prosurvival and antiapoptotic factors. Mos...
