Murine models to evaluate novel and conventional therapeutic strategies for cancer.
Animal models, by definition, are an approximation of reality, and their use in developing anti-cancer drugs is controversial. Positive retrospective clinical correlations have been identified withExpand

Participation of p53 cellular tumour antigen in transformation of normal embryonic cells
The cellular tumour antigen p53 is found at elevated levels in a wide variety of transformed cells (for reviews see refs 1, 2). Very little is yet known about the precise relationship of p53 toExpand

Galectin-3, a Novel Binding Partner of β-Catenin
Galectin-3 (gal-3), a pleiotrophic protein, is an important regulator of tumor metastasis, which like β-catenin shuttles between the nucleus and the cytosol in a phosphorylation-dependent manner. WeExpand

The autocrine motility factor receptor gene encodes a novel type of seven transmembrane protein 1
Autocrine motility factor receptor (AMFR) is a cell surface glycoprotein of molecular weight 78 000 (gp78), mediating cell motility signaling in vitro and metastasis in vivo. Here, we cloned theExpand

Overexpression of the autocrine motility factor/phosphoglucose isomerase induces transformation and survival of NIH-3T3 fibroblasts.
Autocrine motility factor (AMF)/phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) is a ubiquitous cytosolic enzyme and is produced as a leaderless secretory protein, released from cells via a nonclassical pathway.Expand

Galectin-3 Translocates to the Perinuclear Membranes and Inhibits Cytochrome c Release from the Mitochondria
Galectin-3 is a multifunctional oncogenic protein found in the nucleus and cytoplasm and also the extracellular milieu. Although recent studies demonstrated an anti-apoptotic activity of galectin-3,Expand

Nuclear Export of Phosphorylated Galectin-3 Regulates Its Antiapoptotic Activity in Response to Chemotherapeutic Drugs
ABSTRACT Galectin-3 (Gal-3), a member of the β-galactoside binding protein family containing the NWGR antideath motif of the Bcl-2 protein family, is involved in various aspects of cancerExpand
