Mechanisms of glucocorticoid receptor action in noninflammatory and inflammatory cells.
Glucocorticoids exert profound and diverse physiological effects on a wide range of cell types. Produced and released from the adrenal cortex in response to stress, levels of glucocorticoids areExpand

A novel bioinformatics pipeline for identification and characterization of fusion transcripts in breast cancer and normal cell lines
SnowShoes-FTD, developed for fusion transcript detection in paired-end mRNA-Seq data, employs multiple steps of false positive filtering to nominate fusion transcripts with near 100% confidence.Expand

Macrophage-secreted cytokines drive pancreatic acinar-to-ductal metaplasia through NF-κB and MMPs
Macrophages infiltrating the pancreas in response to inflammation induce cellular transdifferentiation by secreting cytokines that activate NF-κB signaling and matrix metalloproteinase expression.

Misregulated E-Cadherin Expression Associated with an Aggressive Brain Tumor Phenotype
Background Cadherins are essential components of the adherens junction complexes that mediate cell-cell adhesion and regulate cell motility. During tissue morphogenesis, changes in cadherinExpand

Mutant KRAS-induced expression of ICAM-1 in pancreatic acinar cells causes attraction of macrophages to expedite the formation of precancerous lesions.
UNLABELLED Desmoplasia and an inflammatory environment are defining features of pancreatic cancer. Unclear is how pancreatic cells that undergo oncogenic transformation can cross-talk with immuneExpand

MicroRNA signatures: clinical biomarkers for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
Recognition that breast cancer is a heterogeneous disease in which each patient's tumor has specific characteristics has led to a search for biomarkers and combinations of markers (signatures) toExpand

Differential expression, distribution, and function of PPAR-γ in the proximal and distal colon
Suppression of colon carcinogenesis by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-γ is likely due to some effect of PPAR-γ on normal colonic epithelial cells. However, our understanding of t...

Toll‐like receptor 4 mediates cross‐talk between peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor γ and nuclear factor‐κB in macrophages
The peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor γ (PPARγ) is expressed in macrophages and plays an important role in suppressing the inflammatory response. Lipopolysaccharides (LPS), which activateExpand
