The aim of the present study was to assess the possible etiologic role of human papillomavirus (HPV), human herpes virus (HHV) and the human polyoma virus families (BKV and JCV) in the tumourigenesis of bladder cancer. Thirty biopsy specimens from patients with different grades and stages of bladder cancer, who underwent transurethral bladder cancer(More)
p63 plays an important role in several intracellular processes such as transcription activation and apoptosis. p63 has two N-terminal isoforms, TAp63 and ΔNp63. TAp63 isoform has p53-like functions, while ΔNp63 acts as a dominant negative inhibitor of the p53 family and is considered oncogenic. Although p63 and its isoforms are overexpressed in a wide(More)
p53 is a tumour suppressor gene with an established role in the majority of human neoplasias. Its homologues—p63 and p73—cannot be classified as tumour suppressors, since they encode isoforms with oncogenic properties as well. p63 plays a crucial role in epithelial cell differentiation and p73 is essential for neuronal cell development. The p63 and p73(More)
