Long noncoding RNA HOTAIR reprograms chromatin state to promote cancer metastasis
Large intervening non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs) are pervasively transcribed in the genome yet their potential involvement in human disease is not well understood. Recent studies of dosage compensation,Expand

Sustained inhibition of PKCα reduces intravasation and lung seeding during mammary tumor metastasis in an in vivo mouse model
Metastasis is the major reason for breast cancer-related deaths. Although there is a host of indirect evidence for a role of protein kinase C (PKC) α in primary breast cancer growth, its role in theExpand

Discovery of a Novel Class of Covalent Inhibitor for Aldehyde Dehydrogenases*
Background: ALDH enzymes metabolize aldehydes in many pathways, including the inactivation of cyclophosphamide. Results: Covalent inhibitors against ALDH were discovered, and their mechanism ofExpand

Targeting aldehyde dehydrogenase activity in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma with a novel small molecule inhibitor.
Chemoresistant cancer cells express high levels of aldehyde dehydrogenases (ALDHs), particularly in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The ALDH family of enzymes detoxify both exogenousExpand
