Although breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies, the molecular mechanisms underlying its development and progression are not fully understood. To identify key molecules involved, we screened publicly available microarray datasets for genes differentially expressed between breast cancers and normal mammary glands. We found that three of the(More)
Malignant gliomas are the most common neoplasm in the central nervous system. When treated with conventional treatments including surgery, irradiation, and chemotherapy, the average life expectancy of the most malignant type, glioblastoma multiforme is usually less than 1 year. Therefore, gene therapy is expected to be an effective and possibly curative(More)
The up-regulation of chemokine receptors CXCR4 and CXCR7 impacts on the distant metastasis and prognosis of breast cancer, though knowledge about the regulatory mechanism of their expressions is limited. Meanwhile, the GLI transcription factors of Hedgehog signaling have been reported to play a pivotal role in the development and progression of many types(More)
Activity of GLI transcription factors of Hedgehog signaling is key for various cancer cell properties, especially in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Zinc-finger transcriptional regulators ZIC1 to ZIC5 of ZIC gene family were demonstrated to associate with GLI to increase the nuclear accumulation and transcriptional activity of GLI.
