Somatic mosaicism for a MECP2 mutation associated with classic Rett syndrome in a boy
(Nature Publishing, 2002)
Rett syndrome is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder that arises from mutations in the X-linked MECP2 gene. It is almost exclusively seen in girls due to the predominant occurrence of the mutations on the paternal ...
Mutations in RAD21 disrupt regulation of apob in patients with chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction
(W.B. Saunders, 2015)
Background Aims Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIPO) is characterized by severe intestinal dysmotility that mimics a mechanical subocclusion with no evidence of gut obstruction. We searched for genetic variants ...
Colon cancer associated transcript-1 (CCAT1) expression in adenocarcinoma of the stomach
(Ivyspring International Publisher, 2015)
Background: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to have functional roles in cancer biology and are dys-regulated in many tumors. Colon Cancer Associated Transcript -1 (CCAT1) is a lncRNA, previously shown to be ...
Enhanced immunostimulatory activity of cyclic dinucleotides on mouse cells when complexed with a cell-penetrating peptide or combined with CpG
(Wiley - V C H Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, 2015)
Recognition of pathogen-derived nucleic acids by immune cells is critical for the activation of protective innate immune responses. Bacterial cyclic dinucleotides (CDNs) are small nucleic acids that are directly recognized ...
Differential expression patterns of metastasis suppressor proteins in basal cell carcinoma
(Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2015)
Background: Basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) are common malignant skin tumors. Despite having a significant invasion capacity, they metastasize only rarely. Our aim in this study was to detect the expression patterns of the ...
Patrolling monocytes control tumor metastasis to the lung
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2015)
The immune system plays an important role in regulating tumor growth and metastasis. Classical monocytes promote tumorigenesis and cancer metastasis, but how nonclassical "patrolling" monocytes (PMo) interact with tumors ...
MicroRNA-519a is a novel oncomir conferring tamoxifen resistance by targeting a network of tumour-suppressor genes in ER+ breast cancer
(John Wiley and Sons Ltd, 2014)
Tamoxifen is an endocrine therapy which is administered to up to 70% of all breast cancer patients with oestrogen receptor alpha (ERα) expression. Despite the initial response, most patients eventually acquire resistance ...
Analysis of MYH Tyr165Cys and Gly382Asp variants in childhood leukemias

Jnk1 deficiency in hematopoietic cells suppresses macrophage apoptosis and increases atherosclerosis in low-density lipoprotein receptor null mice
(Lippincott Williams and Wilkins, 2016)
Objective - The c-Jun NH 2 -terminal kinases (JNK) are regulated by a wide variety of cellular stresses and have been implicated in apoptotic signaling. Macrophages express 2 JNK isoforms, JNK1 and JNK2, which may have ...
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 ...
