Regulator of calcineurin 1 (RCAN1) is related to the expression of human neurologic disorders such as Down syndrome, Alzheimer disease, and chromosome 21q deletion syndrome. We showed here that RCAN1-knockout mice exhibit reduced innate anxiety as indicated by the elevated-plus maze. To examine whether glucocorticoids contribute to this phenotype, we(More)
In the present work we show that multiple lung cancer cell lines contain cisplatin resistant cell subpopulations expressing the Colony-Stimulating-Factor-Receptor-1 (CSF-1R) and surviving chemotherapy-induced stress. By exploiting siRNA-mediated knock down in vitro and the use of an investigational CSF-1R TKI (JNJ-40346527) in vitro and in vivo, we show(More)
101 Background: Increased androgen receptor (AR) and PI3K/Akt/mTOR signaling drive androgen-independent (AI) prostate cancer (PC) progression. AR splice variants (SV) lacking the ligand-binding domain activate ligand-independent transcriptional programs that support castration resistant proliferation and survival. Treatment of the androgen-dependent PTEN(More)
