LKB1 Loss induces characteristic patterns of gene expression in human tumors associated with NRF2 activation and attenuation of PI3K-AKT.
(Journal of thoracic oncology : official publication of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, 2014-06)
Inactivation of serine/threonine kinase 11 (STK11 or LKB1) is common in lung cancer, and understanding the pathways and phenotypes altered as a consequence will aid the development of targeted therapeutic strategies. Gene ...
Angiopoietin receptor TEK mutations underlie primary congenital glaucoma with variable expressivity.
(The Journal of clinical investigation, 2016-07)
Primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) is a devastating eye disease and an important cause of childhood blindness worldwide. In PCG, defects in the anterior chamber aqueous humor outflow structures of the eye result in elevated ...
Role of NHERF and scaffolding proteins in proximal tubule transport.
(Urological research, 2010-08)
Eukaryotic cells coordinate specific responses to hormones and growth factors by spatial and temporal organization of "signaling components." Through the formation of multiprotein complexes, cells are able to generate "signaling ...
Transcription factor Nrf2 hyperactivation in early-phase renal ischemia-reperfusion injury prevents tubular damage progression.
(Kidney international, 2017-02)
Acute kidney injury is a devastating disease with high morbidity in hospitalized patients and contributes to the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease. An underlying mechanism of acute kidney injury involves ischemia-reperfusion ...
The role of macrophages in hypertension and its complications.
(Pflugers Archiv : European journal of physiology, 2017-04)
Circulating monocytes and tissue macrophages play complex roles in the pathogenesis of hypertension, a highly prevalent disease associated with catastrophic cardiovascular morbidity. In the vasculature and kidney, ...
Phosphorylation at tyrosine 262 promotes GADD34 protein turnover.
(The Journal of biological chemistry, 2013-11)
In mammalian cells, metabolic and environmental stress increases the phosphorylation of the eukaryotic translational initiation factor, eIF2α, and attenuates global protein synthesis. Subsequent transcriptional activation ...
Plasticity of Hopx(+) type I alveolar cells to regenerate type II cells in the lung.
(Nature communications, 2015-04-13)
The plasticity of differentiated cells in adult tissues undergoing repair is an area of intense research. Pulmonary alveolar type II cells produce surfactant and function as progenitors in the adult, demonstrating ...
A SMAP in the face for cancer.
(The Journal of clinical investigation, 2017-06)
Observed deficits in protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) function in a variety of human cancers have stimulated drug discovery efforts aimed at restoring PP2A function to inhibit tumor growth. Work published by Sangodkar et al. ...
Deregulated PP1α phosphatase activity towards MAPK activation is antagonized by a tumor suppressive failsafe mechanism.
(Nature communications, 2018-01-15)
The mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway is frequently aberrantly activated in advanced cancers, including metastatic prostate cancer (CaP). However, activating mutations or gene rearrangements among MAPK signaling ...
