FOXO Proteins Regulate Tumor Necrosis Factor-related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand Expression
Mutations in PTEN occur in 60–80% of prostate cancers and lead to a constitutive activation of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase pathway and a resultant loss of activity of the FOXO family ofExpand

Inflammation and the development of pancreatic cancer.
OBJECTIVE Pancreatic cancer has an extremely poor prognosis and the cellular mechanisms contributing to pancreatic cancer are relatively unknown. The goals of this review are to present theExpand

Glycogen synthase kinase-3 is a negative regulator of extracellular signal-regulated kinase
Glycogen-synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) are critical downstream signaling proteins for the PI3-kinase/Akt and Ras/Raf/MEK-1 pathway, respectively, andExpand

Establishment and characterization of a human carcinoid in nude mice and effect of various agents on tumor growth.
The authors have established a long-term tissue culture cell line (BON) derived from a metastatic human carcinoid tumor of the pancreas. The cells have been in continuous passage for 46 months.Expand

Effects of aging on mortality, hypothermia, and cytokine induction in mice with endotoxemia or sepsis
Aging is accompanied by an altered stress response that underlies increased susceptibility of the elderly patients to physiological stress such as infection and sepsis. In the present study, weExpand

Isolation and molecular characterization of the 5'-upstream region of the human TRAIL gene.
TRAIL, a novel member of the TNF family, acts through membrane receptors to induce apoptosis of activated T lymphocytes and may represent a mechanism for the "immune escape" of certain cancers.Expand

Novel Cross Talk of Krüppel-Like Factor 4 and β-Catenin Regulates Normal Intestinal Homeostasis and Tumor Repression
ABSTRACT Epithelial cells of the intestinal mucosa undergo a continual process of proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis which is regulated by multiple signaling pathways. The Wnt/β-cateninExpand

Human Colorectal Cancers Express a Constitutively Active Cholecystokinin-B/Gastrin Receptor That Stimulates Cell Growth*
Although ectopic expression of the cholecystokinin B/gastrin receptor (CCK-BR) is widely reported in human colorectal cancers, its role in mediating the proliferative effects of gastrin1–17 (G-17) onExpand

Frequent activation of the hedgehog pathway in advanced gastric adenocarcinomas.
The hedgehog pathway plays a critical role in the development of the foregut. Recent studies indicate that the hedgehog pathway activation occurs in the stomach and other gastrointestinal cancers.Expand

Increased incidence of well-differentiated thyroid cancer associated with Hashimoto thyroiditis and the role of the PI3k/Akt pathway.
BACKGROUND The link between inflammation and cancer is well-established, but the link between Hashimoto thyroiditis (HT) and thyroid cancer remains controversial. The purpose of our study was toExpand
