Proteins that modulate the activity of transcription factors, often called modulators, play a critical role in creating tissue- and context-specific gene expression responses to the signals cells receive. GEM (Gene Expression Modulation) is a probabilistic framework that predicts modulators, their affected targets and mode of action by combining gene expression profiles, protein-protein interactions and transcription factor-target relationships. Using GEM, we correctly predicted a significant number of androgen receptor modulators and observed that most modulators can both act as co-activators and co-repressors for different target genes. © The Author(s) 2010.

Quantification of SLIT-ROBO transcripts in hepatocellular carcinoma reveals two groups of genes with coordinate expression Avci, M.E.; Konu O.; Yagci, T. (2008)Background: SLIT-ROBO families of proteins mediate axon pathfinding and their expression is not solely confined to nervous system. Aberrant expression of SLIT-ROBO genes was repeatedly shown in a wide variety of cancers, ...
p53 but not p16(INK4a) induces growth arrest retinoblastoma-deficient hepatocellular carcinoma cells Morel, A.P.; Unsal, K.; Cagatay, T.; Ponchel F.; Carr, B.; Ozturk, M. (2000)Background/Aim: Both p16(INK4a) and p53 proteins are negative regulators of the cell cycle. In human hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC), the loss of function of p53, retinoblastoma (pRb) and p16(INK4a) genes by different ...
TRIB2 confers resistance to anti-cancer therapy by activating the serine/threonine protein kinase AKT Hill R.; Madureira P.A.; Ferreira B.; Baptista I.; Machado S.; Colaço L.; Dos Santos M.; Liu N.; Dopazo A.; Ugurel S.; Adrienn A.; Kiss-Toth E.; Isbilen M.; Gure A.O.; Link W. (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. ...
