The type I interferons (IFNs) bind surface receptors, induce JAK kinases and activate STAT transcription factors to stimulate the transcription of genes downstream of IFN-stimulated response elements (ISREs). In this study, we demonstrate that IFNaR2, a subunit of the type I IFN receptor, is proteolytically cleaved in a regulated manner. Immunoblotting(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the present study was to investigate the potential role of 14-3-3sigma in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN 14-3-3 isoform expression was determined by real-time quantitative PCR in laser capture normal pancreatic ductal cells and pancreatic cancer cells and in 5 pancreatic cancer cell lines. PANC-1 cells,(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is highly resistant to current chemotherapy regimens, in part due to alterations in the p53 tumor suppressor pathway. p53 homolog p63 is a transcription factor essential for the development and differentiation of epithelial surfaces. However its function in cancer is controversial and its role in PDAC is not known. We(More)
