Modulating protein ubiquitination via proteasome inhibition represents a promising target for cancer therapy, because of the higher sensitivity of cancer cells to the cytotoxic effects of proteasome inhibition. Here we show that CEP-18770 is a novel orally-active inhibitor of the chymotrypsin-like activity of the proteasome that down-modulates the nuclear(More)
PURPOSE To unravel the regulatory network underlying nucleophosmin-anaplastic lymphoma kinase (NPM-ALK) -mediated lymphomagenesis of anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) and to discover diagnostic genomic classifiers for the recognition of patients with ALK-positive and ALK-negative ALCL among T-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (T-NHL). PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
We have used the mammalian post-natal cerebellar cortex as a model to dissect out the molecular morphology of neuronal apoptosis in a well-defined population of central neurons: the cerebellar granule cells. By immunocytochemistry, in situ labeling of apoptotic cells, and analysis of cerebellar slices following particle-mediated gene transfer (biolistics),(More)
It is generally assumed that about half of the neurons produced during neurogenesis die before completion of maturation of the central nervous system (CNS). Neural cell death is also relevant in aging and several neurodegenerative diseases. Among the modalities by which neurons die, apoptosis has very much attracted the interest of investigators because in(More)
γ-Aminobutyric acid is the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in adults, acting through ionotropic chloride-permeable GABAA receptors (GABAARs), and metabotropic GABABRs coupled to calcium or potassium channels, and cyclic AMP signalling. During early development, γ-aminobutyric acid is the main neurotransmitter and is not hyperpolarizing, as GABAAR(More)
There is a general agreement on the Nestin re-expression in reactive astrocytes, but its modalities differ among experimental animal species and between the latter and human material. In a series of 40 surgical specimens, including gliomas, vascular malformations, abscesses and angiomas, the glial reaction has been studied by immunohistochemistry and(More)
Nestin is a marker of early stages of neurocytogenesis. It has been studied in 50 neuroepithelial tumors, mostly gliomas of different malignancy grades, by immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, immunoblotting, and confocal microscopy and compared with GFAP and Vimentin. As an early marker of differentiation, Nestin is almost not expressed in diffuse(More)
