Hypoxia is an all but ubiquitous phenomenon in cancers. Two known hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs), HIF-1α and HIF-2α, primarily mediate the transcriptional response to hypoxia. Despite the high homology between HIF-1α and HIF-2α, emerging evidence suggests differences between both molecules in terms of transcriptional targets as well as impact on multiple(More)
INTRODUCTION Neratinib is a potent irreversible pan-ErbB tyrosine kinase inhibitor that has demonstrated antitumour activity and an acceptable safety profile in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER)-2-positive breast cancer and other solid tumours. METHODS This was a phase I/II, open-label, two-part study. Part 1 was a dose-escalation(More)
BACKGROUND The dynamics of focal adhesion (FA) turnover is a key determinant for the regulation of cancer cell migration. Here we investigated FA turnover in a panel of breast cancer models with distinct invasive properties and evaluated the impact of reversine on this turnover in relation to cancer cell invasion in in vitro and in vivo conditions.

Overexpression of metadherin (MTDH) has been reported in many solid tumors and implicated in chemoresistance. This study aimed to examine MTDH expression in cervical cancer tissues and explore its role in chemoresistance of cervical cancer. MTDH expression in cervical cancer biopsies and several cervical cancer cell lines was detected by immunoblotting and(More)
