Hypomorphic mutation in one allele of ribosomal protein l24 gene (Rpl24) is responsible for the Belly Spot and Tail (Bst) mouse, which suffers from defects of the eye, skeleton, and coat pigmentation. It has been hypothesized that these pathological manifestations result exclusively from faulty protein synthesis. We demonstrate here that upregulation of the(More)
Three groups of chloroenyne-modified amino acids were synthesized. Chloroenyne moiety was attached at the N- or C-terminal amino acid (Tyr, Phe, Val, Gly, Lys) position carrying different protecting groups. Prepared derivatives will be used as building blocks in the synthesis of enediyne-peptide conjugates. Furthermore, reactivity of modified amino acids in(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a leading cause of cancer deaths, but its molecular heterogeneity hampers the design of targeted therapies. Currently, the only therapeutic option for advanced HCC is Sorafenib, an inhibitor whose targets include RAF. Unexpectedly, RAF1 expression is reduced in human HCC samples. Modelling RAF1 downregulation by RNAi(More)
The RAS pathway is central to epidermal homeostasis, and its activation in tumors or in Rasopathies correlates with hyperproliferation. Downstream of RAS, RAF kinases are actionable targets regulating keratinocyte turnover; however, chemical RAF inhibitors paradoxically activate the pathway, promoting epidermal proliferation. We generated mice with compound(More)
