Glucocorticoid-induced leucine zipper (GILZ) is a 137 amino acid protein, rapidly induced by treatment with glucocorticoids (GC), characterized by a leucine zipper (LZ) domain (76-97 amino acids), an N-terminal domain (1-75 amino acids) and a C-terminal PER domain (98-137 amino acids) rich in proline and glutamic acid residues. We have previously shown that(More)
The administration of neoadjuvant chemotherapy to breast cancer (BC) patients with operable disease allowed studies aimed of exploring the interaction between cytotoxic treatment and tumour biology in vivo. 99 patients with T2-4, NO-1, M0 primary BC received a median of 3 cycles of either CMF regimen (cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, 5-fluorouracil) or(More)
Dexamethasone (DEX), a glucocorticoid hormone (GCH) with specificity for the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) induces T lymphocyte and thymocyte apoptosis. DEX-activated thymocyte apoptosis requires a sequence of biochemical events including mRNA and protein synthesis. In particular, GCH treatment induces non-genomic mechanisms, such as for example Ca(2+)(More)
