PI(4)P Promotes Phosphorylation and Conformational Change of Smoothened through Interaction with Its C-terminal Tail
In Hedgehog (Hh) signaling, binding of Hh to the Patched-Interference Hh (Ptc-Ihog) receptor complex relieves Ptc inhibition on Smoothened (Smo). A longstanding question is how Ptc inhibits Smo andExpand

HOXC8 promotes proliferation and migration through transcriptional up-regulation of TGFβ1 in non-small cell lung cancer
Homeobox (HOX) genes encode a family of transcription factors, which play crucial roles in numerous processes, and their dysregulation is involved in the carcinogenesis of many human cancers. In theExpand

Norepinephrine induced epithelial–mesenchymal transition in HT-29 and A549 cells in vitro
PurposeNorepinephrine (NE) has been implicated in epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) of cancer cells. However, the underlying mechanism is poorly understood. The goal of this study was toExpand
