MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short noncoding RNAs which are endogenously expressed in many organisms and regulate gene expression by binding to messenger RNA (mRNA). MicroRNAs are either produced from their independent transcription units in intergenic regions or lie in intragenic regions. Intragenic miRNAs and their host mRNAs are produced from the… (More)
A systematic study of interleukin-1 beta converting enzyme (ICE, caspase-1) and caspase-3 (CPP32, apopain) inhibitors incorporating a P2-P3 conformationally constrained dipeptide mimetic is reported. Depending on the nature of the P4 substituent, highly selective inhibitors of both Csp-1 or Csp-3 were obtained.
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a family of endopeptidases also known as gelatinases, have been reported to affect the acquisition of the cell proliferative, cell invasive and metastatic phenotype of several types of cancer. In particular, the gelatinases MMP-2 and -9 have been revealed to facilitate tumor growth and invasion in patients with colorectal… (More)
