Multiple biomarker tissue arrays: a computational approach to identifying protein-protein interactions in the EGFR/ERK signalling pathway
(BioMed Central, 2012-09-01)
[Abstract] Background. Many studies have demonstrated genetic and environmental factors that lead to renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and that occur during a protracted period of tumourigenesis. It appears suitable to identify ...
Biological influence of Hakai in cancer: a 10-year review
[Abstract] In order to metastasize, cancer cells must first detach from the primary tumor, migrate, invade through tissues, and attach to a second site. Hakai was discovered as an E3 ubiquitin-ligase that mediates the ...
miR-203 regulates cell proliferation through Its influence on Hakai expression
Gene expression is potently regulated through the action of microRNAs (miRNAs). Here, we present evidence of a miRNA regulating Hakai protein. Hakai was discovered as an E3 ubiquitin-ligase that mediates the posttranslational ...
Crossing paths in Human Renal Cell Carcinoma (hRCC)
[Abstract] Historically, cell-signaling pathways have been studied as the compilation of isolated elements into a unique cascade that transmits extracellular stimuli to the tumor cell nucleus. Today, growing evidence ...
Circulating microRNAs: molecular microsensors in gastrointestinal cancer
[Abstract] MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small molecules of single strand non-coding RNAs, which are able to regulate gene expression. miRNAs have been involved in multiple cellular processes, such as proliferation, apoptosis and ...
Circulating miR-200c as a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for gastric cancer
(BioMed Central, 2012-09-06)
[Abstract] Background. MicroRNAs are aberrantly expressed and correlate with tumourigenesis and the progression of solid tumours. The miR-200 family determines the epithelial phenotype of cancer cells and regulates ...
