The forkhead transcription factors FOXO and FOXM1 have pivotal roles in tumorigenesis and in mediating chemotherapy sensitivity and resistance. Recent research shows that the forkhead transcription factor FOXM1 is a direct transcriptional target repressed by the forkhead protein FOXO3a, a vital downstream effector of the PI3K-AKT-FOXO signaling pathway.(More)
The FOXO3a and FOXM1 forkhead transcription factors are key players in cancer initiation, progression, and drug resistance. Recent research shows that FOXM1 is a direct transcriptional target of FOXO3a, a vital downstream effector of the PI3K-AKT-FOXO signaling cascade. In addition, FOXM1 and FOXO3a also antagonize each other's activity by competitively(More)
AIM Deregulation of FOXM1 has been documented in various cancers. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of FOXM1 in ovarian cancer tumorigenesis and paclitaxel resistance. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Expression of FOXM1 was examined in 119 clinical samples by immunohistochemistry and correlated with clinicopathological parameters. Effects of FOXM1(More)
AIMS Dedicator of cytokinesis I (Dock180) is a novel guanine nucleotide exchange factor for Rho guanosine triphosphates (GTPases) important for cell migration. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of Dock180 in ovarian carcinogenesis. METHODS AND RESULTS Using immunohistochemistry, real-time polymerase chain reaction and Western blotting,(More)
