Patients with cervical cancer show minimal clinical response to the tyrosine kinase inhibitor gefitinib, which targets the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). The molecular mechanisms underlying sensitivity to gefitinib are unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible mechanism by which microRNA-221 (miR-221) affects sensitivity(More)
Matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) has been identified as an important participant in tumor invasion, metastasis and angiogenesis. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) localization to lipid rafts on signaling pathways involved in the regulation of MMP-1 expression in SiHa cells, a(More)
