Exotoxin A production in Pseudomonas aeruginosa requires the iron‐regulated pvdS gene encoding an alternative sigma factor
Exotoxin A (ETA) is secreted by Pseudomonas aeruginosa under iron‐limiting growth conditions. The ETA structural gene, toxA, is regulated at the transcriptional level by the gene products of theExpand

Estrogen induces apoptosis in estrogen deprivation-resistant breast cancer through stress responses as identified by global gene expression across time
In laboratory studies, acquired resistance to long-term antihormonal therapy in breast cancer evolves through two phases over 5 y. Phase I develops within 1 y, and tumor growth occurs with eitherExpand

Cloning and characterization of pvdS, a gene required for pyoverdine synthesis in Pseudomonas aeruginosa: PvdS is probably an alternative sigma factor.
Cells of Pseudomonas aeruginosa secrete a fluorescent yellow-green siderophore, pyoverdine, when grown under iron-deficient conditions. We describe here the cloning and characterization of a gene,Expand

The G protein-coupled receptor GPR30 inhibits proliferation of estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer cells.
The G protein-coupled receptor GPR30 binds 17beta-estradiol (E(2)) yet differs from classic estrogen receptors (ERalpha and ERbeta). GPR30 can mediate E(2)-induced nongenomic signaling, but its roleExpand

Small cell carcinoma of the ovary, hypercalcemic type, displays frequent inactivating germline and somatic mutations in SMARCA4
Small cell carcinoma of the ovary of hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT) is an extremely rare, aggressive cancer affecting children and young women. We identified germline and somatic inactivating mutationsExpand

The gene expression response of breast cancer to growth regulators: patterns and correlation with tumor expression profiles.
The effects of hormone and growth factor signaling on gene expression contribute significantly to breast tumorigenesis and disease progression; however, the targets of signaling networks associatedExpand

Primary renal hypoplasia in humans and mice with PAX2 mutations: evidence of increased apoptosis in fetal kidneys of Pax2(1Neu) +/- mutant mice.
PAX2 mutations cause renal-coloboma syndrome (RCS), a rare multi-system developmental abnormality involving optic nerve colobomas and renal abnormalities. End-stage renal failure is common in RCS,Expand

Characterization of an Endoprotease (PrpL) Encoded by a PvdS-Regulated Gene in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
ABSTRACT The expression of many virulence factors in Pseudomonas aeruginosa is dependent upon environmental conditions, including iron levels, oxygen, temperature, and osmolarity. The virulence of P.Expand

Androgen Receptor-Positive Triple Negative Breast Cancer: A Unique Breast Cancer Subtype
BackgroundThe significance of androgen receptor (AR) expression in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is unclear, and published studies so far have been inconclusive.MethodsA tissue microarray wasExpand

The Fibroblast Growth Factor–Inducible 14 Receptor Is Highly Expressed in HER2-Positive Breast Tumors and Regulates Breast Cancer Cell Invasive Capacity
Genomic characterization is beginning to define a molecular taxonomy for breast cancer; however, the molecular basis of invasion and metastasis remains poorly understood. We report a pivotal role forExpand
