Essential role of KLF5 transcription factor in cell proliferation and differentiation and its implications for human diseases
KLF5 (Kruppel-like factor 5) is a basic transcription factor binding to GC boxes at a number of gene promoters and regulating their transcription. KLF5 is expressed during development and, in adults,… Expand
The Nedd4-like family of E3 ubiquitin ligases and cancer
Accumulating evidence suggests that E3 ubiquitin ligases play important roles in cancer development. In this article, we provide a comprehensive summary of the roles of the Nedd4-like family of E3… Expand
FOXO1A is a candidate for the 13q14 tumor suppressor gene inhibiting androgen receptor signaling in prostate cancer.
Chromosomal deletion is frequent at the region between BRCA2 and RB1 in the q14 band of chromosome 13 (13q14) in human cancers, including prostate cancer, suggesting the presence of a tumor… Expand
The Induction of Yes-Associated Protein Expression After Arterial Injury Is Crucial for Smooth Muscle Phenotypic Modulation and Neointima Formation

Kruppel-like factors (KLFs) are a group of transcription factors that appear to be involved in different biological processes including carcinogenesis. In a recent study, KLF6 was reported as a tumor… Expand
A possible tumor suppressor role of the KLF5 transcription factor in human breast cancer
The 13q21 tumor suppressor locus, as defined by chromosomal deletion, harbors the KLF5 transcription factor which may have tumor suppressor function. To investigate whether KLF5 plays a role in… Expand

The amplification of the q21 band of chromosome 8 (8q21) occurs in a large percentage of breast cancers. WWP1, an HECT domain‐containing ubiquitin E3 ligase located in the 8q21 region, negatively… Expand
The Fbw7 tumor suppressor targets KLF5 for ubiquitin-mediated degradation and suppresses breast cell proliferation.
Fbw7 is a tumor suppressor frequently inactivated in cancers. The KLF5 transcription factor promotes breast cell proliferation and tumorigenesis through upregulating FGF-BP. The KLF5 protein degrades… Expand
Human Kruppel-like Factor 5 Is a Target of the E3 Ubiquitin Ligase WWP1 for Proteolysis in Epithelial Cells*
The transcription factor KLF5 plays an important role in human carcinogenesis. In epithelial cells, the KLF5 protein is tightly regulated by the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. To better understand the… Expand
Mifepristone Suppresses Basal Triple-Negative Breast Cancer Stem Cells by Down-regulating KLF5 Expression
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is currently the most malignant subtype of breast cancers without effective targeted therapies. Mifepristone (MIF), a drug regularly used for abortion, has been… Expand
