Background: The ability of gene profiling to predict treatment response and prognosis in breast cancers has been demonstrated in many studies using DNA microarray analyses on RNA from fresh frozen tumor specimens. In certain clinical and research situations, performing such analyses on archival formalin fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) surgical specimens(More)
Inhibiting activity of the c-Myb transcription factor attenuates G1 to S phase cell cycle transitions in vascular smooth muscle cells (SMCs) in vitro. To determine the effects of arterial SMC-specific expression of a dominant-negative c-Myb molecule (Myb-Engrailed) on vascular remodeling in vivo, we performed carotid artery wire-denudation in 2 independent(More)
OBJECTIVE The IP3 receptor-1 (IP3R1) mediates Ca2+ signals critical to vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation. The cell cycle-associated transcription factor c-Myb increases Ca2+ at the G1/S transition. Here we show the mechanism through which c-Myb regulates expression of IP3R1. METHODS & RESULTS Ribonuclease protection confirmed(More)
