  1. Inhibition of Hsp90 function by ansamycins causes downregulation of cdc2 and cdc25c and G(2)/M arrest in glioblastoma cell lines.

    Oncogene 26(51):7185 (2007) PMID 17525741

    Ansamycins exert their effects by binding heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) and targeting important signalling molecules for degradation via the proteasome pathway. We wanted to study the effect of geldanamycin (GA) and its derivative 17-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG) on glioblastoma c...
  2. A role of estrogen/ERalpha signaling in BRCA1-associated tissue-specific tumor formation.

    Oncogene 26(51):7204 (2007) PMID 17496925

    Estrogen and its receptor alpha (ERalpha) have been implicated in the tissue-specific tumorigenesis associated with BRCA1 mutations. However, the majority of breast cancers developed in human BRCA1 mutation carriers are ERalpha-negative, challenging the link between BRCA1 and estrogen/ERalpha in...
  3. Comparative expression profiling identifies an in vivo target gene signature with TFAP2B as a mediator of the survival function of PAX3/FKHR.

    Oncogene 26(51):7267 (2007) PMID 17525748

    The chromosomal translocation t(2;13), characteristic for the aggressive childhood cancer alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (aRMS), generates the chimeric transcription factor PAX3/FKHR with a well known oncogenic role. However, the molecular mechanisms mediating essential pathophysiological functions r...
  4. The VEGF angiogenic switch of fibroblasts is regulated by MMP-7 from cancer cells.

    Oncogene 26(51):7194 (2007) PMID 17525740

    Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production by stromal fibroblasts plays an important role in tumor angiogenesis. However, VEGF is also expressed by normal tissue fibroblasts, raising the question of how the VEGF activity of fibroblasts is regulated. Here we report that the latent VEGF ...
  5. Cooperation between JNK1 and JNK2 in activation of p53 apoptotic pathway.

    Oncogene 26(51):7222 (2007) PMID 17525747

    FDH (10-formyltetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase) is strongly downregulated in tumors while its elevation suppresses proliferation of cancer cells and induces p53-dependent apoptosis. We have previously shown that FDH induces phosphorylation of p53 at Ser6, which is a required step in the activation...
  6. Cyclin B2 suppresses mitotic failure and DNA re-replication in human somatic cells knocked down for both cyclins B1 and B2.

    Oncogene 26(51):7175 (2007) PMID 17533373

    Cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (CDK1) plays a crucial role in establishing metaphase and has also been shown to prevent DNA re-replication. Cyclins B1 and B2 are two known activators of CDK1 operating during mitosis in human cells. Little is known about the specific roles of each of these cyclins in ...
  7. IFN-gamma-induced expression of MUC4 in pancreatic cancer cells is mediated by STAT-1 upregulation: a novel mechanism for IFN-gamma response.

    Oncogene 26(51):7251 (2007) PMID 17525742

    MUC4 is a transmembrane mucin, which is aberrantly expressed in pancreatic adenocarcinoma with no detectable expression in the normal pancreas. Here, we present a novel mechanism of IFN-gamma-induced expression of MUC4 in pancreatic cancer cells. Our studies highlight the upregulation of STAT-1 ...
  8. Oncogenic activation of the Met receptor tyrosine kinase fusion protein, Tpr-Met, involves exclusion from the endocytic degradative pathway.

    Oncogene 26(51):7213 (2007) PMID 17533376

    Multiple mechanisms of dysregulation of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) are observed in human cancers. In addition to gain-of-function, loss of negative regulation also contributes to oncogenic activation of RTKs. Negative regulation of many RTKs involves their internalization and degradation i...
  9. Mutations of the HIPK2 gene in acute myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome impair AML1- and p53-mediated transcription.

    Oncogene 26(51):7231 (2007) PMID 17533375

    The AML1 transcription factor complex is the most frequent target of leukemia-associated chromosomal translocations. Homeodomain-interacting protein kinase 2 (HIPK2) is a part of the AML1 complex and activates AML1-mediated transcription. However, chromosomal translocations and mutations of HIPK...
  10. The p53--Mdm2--HAUSP complex is involved in p53 stabilization by HAUSP.

    Oncogene 26(51):7262 (2007) PMID 17525743 PMCID PMC3690499

    The ubiquitin-specific protease HAUSP is a critical component of the p53-Mdm2 pathway by acting as a specific deubiquitinase for both p53 and Mdm2. Recent structural studies have indicated that p53 and Mdm2 bind to the N-terminal TRAF-like domain of HAUSP in a mutually exclusive manner. To under...
