Point Mutation of neu Oncogene in Animal Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors
Thirty-four peripheral nerve sheath tumors of four domesticated animal species were characterized and assayed for point mutation of the neu oncogene. Based on their morphoimmunophenotype, 32 tumorsExpand
The Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus homologous region 1a: identical sequences are essential for DNA replication activity and transcriptional enhancer function.
Hr1a consists of two 30-bp imperfect palindrome sequences separated by 58 bp and each palindrome contains a naturally occurring EcoRI site at its core. Plasmid subclones of the hr1a-containing AcMNPVExpand
EWS-FLI1, EWS-ERG, and EWS-ETV1 oncoproteins of Ewing tumor family all suppress transcription of transforming growth factor beta type II receptor gene.
Ewing sarcoma-specific chromosomal translocations fuse the EWS gene to a subset of ets transcription factor family members, most commonly the FLI1 gene and less frequently ERG, ETV1, E1A-F, or FEV.Expand
MS-275, a histone deacetylase inhibitor, selectively induces transforming growth factor beta type II receptor expression in human breast cancer cells.
Transcriptional repression of the transforming growth factor (TGF)-1P type II receptor (TPRII) gene appears to be a major mechanism to inactivate TGF-beta responsiveness in many human cancers.Expand
Effects of chronic dietary beer and ethanol consumption on experimental colonic carcinogenesis by azoxymethane in rats.
Epidemiological studies have shown an association between consumption of alcoholic beverages, particularly beer, and carcinoma of the large bowel, especially the rectum. We studied the effects ofExpand
Activity against plant pathogenic fungi of phomalactone isolated from Nigrospora sphaerica.
Phomalactone, 5,6-dihydro-5-hydroxy-6-prop-2-enyl-2H-pyran-2-one, produced by the fungus Nigrospora sphaerica, was tested in vitro against nine plant pathogenic fungi, and specifically inhibited theExpand
Efficacy of epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors for brain metastasis in non-small cell lung cancer patients harboring either exon 19 or 21 mutation.
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring an activating epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation shows good and rapid response to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). We prospectivelyExpand
Induction of retinoid resistance in breast cancer cells by overexpression of cJun.
To investigate the role of AP-1 transcription factors in mediating retinoid-induced growth suppression of breast cells, we studied the sensitivity of MCF7 breast cancer cells with different levels ofExpand

Retinoids have been investigated as potential agents for the prevention and treatment of human cancers. These compounds play an important role in regulating cell growth, differentiation, andExpand
Heterozygous mice for the transforming growth factor-beta type II receptor gene have increased susceptibility to hepatocellular carcinogenesis.
The transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) receptor complex and its downstream signaling intermediates constitute a tumor suppressor pathway. In many cancers, expression of TGF-beta type IIExpand
