Astrocytomas develop intense vascular proliferation, essential for tumour growth and invasiveness. Angiotensin II (ANGII) was initially described as a vasoconstrictor; recent studies have shown its participation in cellular proliferation, vascularisation, and apoptosis. We conducted a prospective study to evaluate the expression of ANGII receptors - AT1 and(More)
Dbl proteins are a family of factors that exchange the guanine nucleotide which promote the activation of Rho small GTPases. This paper reports the molecular, structural, biochemical and functional characterization of EhGEF2, a new member of the Dbl family. EhGEF2 is the second GEF studied in parasites and in the protozoan Entamoeba histolytica, and it is(More)
All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) is currently being used in clinical trials for cancer treatment. The use of ATRA is limited because some cancers, such as lung cancer, show resistance to treatment. However, little is known about the molecular mechanisms that regulate resistance to ATRA treatment. Akt is a kinase that plays a key role in cell survival and cell(More)
The ehFLN protein (previously known as EhABP-120) is the first filamin to be identified in the parasitic protozoan Entamoeba histolytica. Filamins are a family of cross-linking actin-binding proteins that organize filamentous actin in networks and stress fibers. It has been reported that filamins of different organisms directly interact with more than 30(More)
This paper reports the EhGEF1-EhRacG and EhGEF1-EhRho1 molecular complexes from Entamoeba histolytica. The not conserved amino acids Gln201,Tyr299, Gln302, Lys312, Asn313, Phe314 and Ile324 were localized, by means of an in silico computational analysis, at the interface of the exposed face from the DH domain of EhGEF1, which are important to establish the(More)
All-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) has been used as an antineoplastic because of its ability to promote proliferation, inhibition, and differentiation, primarily in leukemia; however, in other types of cancer, such as lung cancer, treatment with ATRA is restricted because not all the patients experience the same results. The ERK signaling pathway is(More)
