Immunohistochemical analysis of T-type calcium channels in acquired melanocytic nevi and melanoma.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cutaneous malignant melanoma arises from transformed melanocytes de novo or from congenital or acquired melanocytic nevi. We have recently reported that T-type Ca2+ channels (TTCs) are upregulated in human melanoma and play an important role on cell proliferation....

Genetic Determinants of Cisplatin Resistance in Patients With Advanced Germ Cell Tumors

Owing to its exquisite chemotherapy sensitivity, most patients with metastatic germ cell tumors (GCTs) are cured with cisplatin-based chemotherapy. However, up to 30% of patients with advanced GCT exhibit cisplatin resistance,...

Targeting renal cell carcinoma with a HIF-2 antagonist

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is characterized by inactivation of the von Hippel-Lindau tumour suppressor gene (VHL). Because no other gene is mutated as frequently in ccRCC and VHL mutations are truncal, VHL inactivation is regarded as the governing...

Structural insights into mis-regulation of protein kinase A in human tumors

The extensively studied cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) is involved in the regulation of critical cell processes, including metabolism, gene expression, and cell proliferation; consequentially, mis-regulation of PKA signaling is implicated in tumorigenesis. Recent genomic studies have identified recurrent mutations...

Prognostic value of miR-375 and miR-214-3p in early stage oral squamous cell carcinoma

MicroRNAs (miRs) control cell growth, apoptosis and differentiation, and thus play a key role in carcinogenesis. Identification of a set of miRs that demonstrate differential expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) patients with poor prognosis has potential for utility...

Altering the intestinal microbiota during a critical developmental window has lasting metabolic consequences.

Acquisition of the intestinal microbiota begins at birth, and a stable microbial community develops from a succession of key organisms. Disruption of the microbiota during maturation by low-dose antibiotic exposure can alter host metabolism and adiposity. We now show that...
