Four ErbB receptors and multiple growth factors sharing an epidermal growth factor (EGF) motif underlie transmembrane signaling by the ErbB family in development and cancer. Unlike other ErbB proteins, ErbB-2 binds no known EGF-like ligand. To address the existence of a direct ligand for ErbB-2, we applied algorithms based on genomic and cDNA structures to(More)
BACKGROUND Prostate cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in males. Autocrine/paracrine growth factors for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) have been identified in prostate tumors suggesting a role for EGFR in the progression of prostate cancer. The androgen-dependent prostate cancer cell line, LNCaP, expresses the EGFR as well(More)
BACKGROUND Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNA) regulate gene transcription and diverse cellular functions. We have recently reported a core inflammatory and metabolic ileal gene signature in treatment naïve pediatric Crohn Disease (CD), but the potential role of lncRNA was not known. We hypothesized that differences in ileal lncRNA would be associated with(More)
