Dysregulated Notch signaling has been implicated in numerous human diseases, including a broad spectrum of cancers. Mutations in Notch1 are prevalent in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and abnormal expression of different human Notch receptors contributes to B-cell tumors as well as cancers of the breast, lung, pancreas, skin, prostate, colon, brain(More)
Forty isolates belonging to the Saccharomyces sensu lato complex were analyzed for one nuclear and two mitochondrial sequences, and for their karyotypes. These data are useful for description and definition of yeast species based on the phylogenetic species concept. The deduced phylogenetic relationships among isolates based on the nuclear and mitochondrial(More)
The gamma-secretase aspartyl protease is responsible for the cleavage of numerous type I integral membrane proteins, including amyloid precursor protein (APP) and Notch. APP cleavage contributes to the generation of toxic amyloid beta peptides in Alzheimer's disease, whereas cleavage of the Notch receptor is required for normal physiological signaling(More)
Developmental patterning requires the precise interplay of numerous intercellular signaling pathways to ensure that cells are properly specified during tissue formation and organogenesis. The spatiotemporal function of the Notch signaling pathway is strongly influenced by the biosynthesis and intracellular trafficking of signaling components. Receptors and(More)
