Behaviour that is assumed to be guided by strategy can, in fact, be based on the implicit learning of regularities in the environment. We demonstrate this point in the context of a Stroop experiment. It has been shown previously that performance on this measure of cognitive control varies as a function of the relative proportions of congruent and(More)
Background:The influence of the stromal microenvironment on the progression of epithelial cancers has been demonstrated. Unravelling the mechanisms by which stromal cells affect epithelial behaviour will contribute in understanding cellular malignancy. It has been proposed that redox environment has a role in the acquisition of malignancy. In this work, we(More)
BACKGROUND Four cardiac peptide hormones, namely vessel dilator, long-acting natriuretic peptide (LANP), kaliuretic peptide, and atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) have anticancer effects. MATERIALS AND METHODS The effects of these four cardiac hormones on human c-Jun-N-terminal kinase 2 (JNK2) were examined in human small cell lung cancer and human(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Membrane type 1-matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) is a collagenolytic enzyme involved in connective tissue remodeling. In periodontal tissues, either cytokines or growth factors regulate the production of proteolytic enzymes. Mice deficient in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) show a reduced expression of MT1-MMP, suggesting(More)
Hic-5 (hydrogen peroxide–inducible clone-5) is a focal adhesion protein that is involved in cellular senescence. In the present study, a yeast two-hybrid screen identified Hic-5 as a protein that interacts with a region of the glucocorticoid receptor that includes a nuclear matrix–targeting signal and the t2 transcriptional activation domain. In transiently(More)
