We show in this study that endogenous NEP and PTEN associate in cells directly through electrostatic interactions between a highly basic residue stretch in the intracellular domain of NEP and the major phosphorylation site in PTEN's tail. NEP binds and engages in higher order complexes both phosphorylated and unphosphorylated PTEN. NEP recruits PTEN to the(More)
Cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) are rare lymphomas that arise primarily in the skin and are treated with skin-directed therapies in early-stage disease. Systemic therapy is indicated once skin-directed therapy is ineffective or for advanced-stage disease. CTCLs tend to be poorly responsive to chemotherapy and are incurable except for allogeneic stem cell(More)
Androgen-mediated growth repression of androgen-independent prostate cancer (AIPC) cells has been reported in androgen-independent PC-3 cells overexpressing the androgen receptor, and in androgen-independent derivatives of LNCaP cells that develop following prolonged culture in androgen-free media. Using two models of AIPC, PC3/AR cells and LNCaP-OM1 cells,(More)
Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma/mycosis fungoides (CTCL/MF) is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder which can present as an indolent or as an aggressive process involving skin, lymph nodes, and blood. In stages IA, IB and IIA, it is usually managed with topical medications and phototherapy. If there is progression despite application of these treatments, or if the(More)
BACKGROUND High-dose chemotherapy followed by autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) has a well-established role in the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma. Melphalan 200 mg/m2 (Mel200) is the most commonly used preparative regimen. Several studies have provided evidence for potential synergism and safety when combining bortezomib (Btz) or(More)
