NCAPG Is a Promising Therapeutic Target Across Different Tumor Types

ConclusionTo our knowledge, this study represents a comprehensive RNA-Seq analysis of several tumor types, revealing NCAPG as a promising molecular target. NCAPG overexpression may play important roles in carcinogenesis and progression of tumors via regulating tumor-related pathways, thereby broadening the understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms and highlighting the possibility of developing novel targeted therapeutics.

ConclusionBased on the vesicular cargo, the molecular constituents, the exosomes have the potential to change the fate of macrophage phenotypes, either M1, classically activated macrophages, or M2, alternatively activated macrophages. In this review, we discuss and describe the ability of tumor-derived exosomes in the mechanism of macrophage activation and polarization.

letal Lucie Cahlikova Martina Řezáčová Bersavine is the new bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid isolated from the Berberis vulgaris L. (Berberidaceae) plant. The results of cytotoxicity screening 48 h post-treatment showed that bersavine considerably inhibits the proliferation and viability of leukemic (Jurkat, MOLT-4), colon (HT-29), cervix (HeLa) and breast (MCF-7) cancer cells with IC50 values ranging from 8.1 to 11 µM. The viability and proliferation of leukemic Jurkat and MOLT-4 cells were decreased after bersavine treatment in a time- and dose-dependent manner. Bersavine manifested concen...

AbstractIn the past decades, the roles of carbohydrates in living organisms and their potential use in many fields have been extensively investigated. Sialyl Lewis x (sLex), a member of body carbohydrate, is an inherent blood-type tetrasaccharide on the surface of different cells, the lymphocyte, neutrophil, some T cells, multiple tumor cells and so on. SLex is a common ligand of the three selectins, L-selectin, E-selectin and P-selectin, and plays important roles in multiple physiological phenomenas by interacting with selectins. Under normal physiological conditions, sLex can affect the immune process and fertilization p...

Contributor : Sanjeev WaghmareSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Mus musculusSfrp1 is a Wnt inhibitor that is down regulated in various human cancers such as acute myeloid leukaemia, hepatocellular carcinoma, pancreatic, ovarian and breast cancer etc. Our study has shown that the loss of Sfrp1 in mouse skin leads to early tumor initiation with induced skin chemical carcinogenesis. Further, CSCs isolated from the Sfrp1-/- tumors showed increased in vivo tumorigenic potential with enhanced tumor propagating cell (TPC) frequency when injected into NOD/SCID mice.Hence, in order to understand the molecular me...

The SOX2OT gene is comprised of 10 exons and more than two transcription start sites. Dysregulation of SOX2OT is observed in various tumors, including lung cancer, gastric cancer, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, ovarian cancer, pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, osteosarcoma, nasopharyngeal carc...

PAK5 was primitively detected in the cerebrum and accelerated the filopodia formation in neurocytes. It can reverse the effect of Rho and adjust its activity to mediate maintenance and development of nerve axon by ...

RAS protein activator like 2 (RASAL2) belongs to the RAS GTPase-activating protein family and plays an important role in several cancers, including ovarian cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, malignant astrocytoma, renal cell carcinoma, bladder cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, lung adenocarcinoma, and pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. Traditionally, RASAL2 has been regarded as a tumor suppressor but recent studies have found that it is an oncogene in specific types of cancer, such as colorectal cancer, liver cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, triple-negative/estrogen receptor-negati...
