Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a frequently lethal disease with heterogeneous outcomes and drug responses. To resolve inconsistencies among the reported gene expression-based CRC classifications and facilitate clinical translation, we formed an international consortium dedicated to large-scale data sharing and analytics across expert groups. We show marked(More)

BCL9/9L proteins enhance the transcriptional output of the β-catenin/TCF transcriptional complex and contribute critically to upholding the high WNT signaling level required for stemness maintenance in the intestinal epithelium. Here we show that a BCL9/9L-dependent gene signature derived from independent mouse colorectal cancer (CRC) models unprecedentedly(More)
Metastases are responsible for most cancer-related deaths. One of the hallmarks of metastatic cells is increased motility and migration through extracellular matrixes. These processes rely on specific small GTPases, in particular those of the Rho family. Deleted in liver cancer-1 (DLC1) is a tumor suppressor that bears a RhoGAP activity. This protein is(More)
While T cell-based immunotherapies are steadily improving, there are still many patients who progress, despite T cell-infiltrated tumors. Emerging evidence suggests that T cells themselves may provoke immune escape of cancer cells. Here, we describe a well-controlled co-culture system for studying the dynamic T cell - cancer cell interplay, using human(More)
49 This supplement is intended to focus on biomarkers for colon cancer. Biomarkers of survival in colon cancer, detection of new colon cancer biomarkers in tissues and body fluids, and new methods for the detection and elimination of micrometastases in colon cancer are included within the supplement's scope. Biomarkers in Cancer aims to provide researchers(More)
A compact testbed for real-time Ultra-Wideband (UWB) wireless system performance evaluation in terms of un-coded bit-error rate is presented. Both the transmitter and the receiver are realized in form of a small PCB. The system operates in the frequency range from 3.1--5.0 GHz with a maximum data rate of 10 MBit/s. By means of two examples this poster(More)
