Cancer cells may evade immune surveillance as a result of defective antigen processing and presentation. In this study, we demonstrate that CD40 ligation overcomes this defect through the coordinated action of the transcription factors NF-kappaB and interferon regulatory factor 1 (IRF-1). We show that unlike interferon signaling, which triggers the(More)
The Transforming Growth Factor-β (TGF-β) signaling pathway is one of the major pathways essential for normal embryonic development and tissue homeostasis, with anti-tumor but also pro-metastatic properties in cancer. This pathway directly regulates several target genes that mediate its downstream functions, however very few microRNAs (miRNAs) have been(More)
Little is known about extrinsic signals required for the advancement of motor neuron (MN) axons, which extend over long distances in the periphery to form precise connections with target muscles. Here we present that Rnf165 (Arkadia-like; Arkadia2; Ark2C) is expressed specifically in the nervous system and that its loss in mice causes motor innervation(More)
