Aberrant activation of hedgehog (HH) pathway has been implicated in the development of human malignancies. This study aimed at investigating the role of HH molecules in human ovarian carcinogenesis. The expression profiles of HH molecules were examined in ovarian tumor samples and ovarian cancer cell lines and the in vitro effects of HH molecules on cell(More)
The hedgehog and Wnt signaling pathways play important roles in human cancers with possible interaction. This study aimed at analysis and correlation of the expression of Gli1, a transcriptional factor and target gene of hedgehog signaling pathway, with clinicopathological parameters and expression of beta-catenin, an important member of the Wnt pathway, in(More)
In this report, we demonstrated that overexpression of tropomyosin-related kinase B (TrkB) was associated with shorter survival in ovarian cancer patients. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), the TrkB ligand, induced activation (phosphorylation) of TrkB in a dose dependent manner. Besides demonstrating the effect of BDNF/TrkB pathway in enhancing(More)
