Frequent and specific immunity to the embryonal stem cell-associated antigen SOX2 in patients with monoclonal gammopathy
(Rockefeller University Press, 2007)
Specific targets of cellular immunity in human premalignancy are largely unknown. Monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) represents a precursor lesion to myeloma (MM). We show that antigenic targets of ...
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 ...
Opposing roles of the aldo-keto reductases AKR1B1 and AKR1B10 in colorectal cancer
(Springer Netherlands, 2017-09)
Purpose: Aldo-keto reductases (including AKR1B1 and AKR1B10) constitute a family of oxidoreductases that have been implicated in the pathophysiology of diabetes and cancer, including colorectal cancer (CRC). Available data ...
MicroRNA expression patterns in canine mammary cancer show significant differences between metastatic and non-metastatic tumours
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2017)
Background: MicroRNAs may act as oncogenes or tumour suppressor genes, which make these small molecules potential diagnostic/prognostic factors and targets for anticancer therapies. Several common oncogenic microRNAs have ...
Phenotype-based variation as a biomarker of sensitivity to molecularly targeted therapy in melanoma
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Transcriptomic phenotypes defined for melanoma have been reported to correlate with sensitivity to various drugs. In this study, we aimed to define a minimal signature that could be used to distinguish melanoma sub-types ...
TRIB2 confers resistance to anti-cancer therapy by activating the serine/threonine protein kinase AKT
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
Intrinsic and acquired resistance to chemotherapy is the fundamental reason for treatment failure for many cancer patients. The identification of molecular mechanisms involved in drug resistance or sensitization is imperative. ...
