Coagulation factor V gene mutation increases the risk of venous thrombosis in Behcet's disease
(Oxford University Press, 1996)
We investigated the prevalence of the coagulation factor V gene G1691A mutation in 64 patients with Behcet's disease (BD) and in 107 apparently healthy individuals. The mutation was present in the heterozygous state in ...
The prosurvival IKK-related kinase IKKϵ integrates LPS and IL17A signaling cascades to promote Wnt-dependent tumor development in the intestine
(American Association for Cancer Research, 2016-05)
Constitutive Wnt signaling promotes intestinal cell proliferation, but signals from the tumor microenvironment are also required to support cancer development. The role that signaling proteins play to establish a tumor ...
The miR-644a/CTBP1/p53 axis suppresses drug resistance by simultaneous inhibition of cell survival and epithelialmesenchymal transition in breast cancer
(Impact Journals LLC, 2016)
Tumor cells develop drug resistance which leads to recurrence and distant metastasis. MicroRNAs are key regulators of tumor pathogenesis; however, little is known whether they can sensitize cells and block metastasis ...
Evaluation of X chromosome inactivation with respect to HLA genetic susceptibility in rheumatoid arthritis and systemic sclerosis
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Background: Autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic sclerosis (SSc) are characterized by a strong genetic susceptibility from the Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) locus. Additionally, disorders ...
