The multifunctional protein netrin-1 was initially discovered as the main attractive cue for commissural axon guidance by acting through its receptor DCC. Recently, we have shown that netrin-1 also interacts with the orphan transmembrane receptor amyloid precursor protein (APP). APP is cleaved by proteases, generating amyloid-β peptide, the main component(More)
Reactivation of the tumor suppressor activity to mutant p53 should trigger massive apoptosis and eliminate tumors. The low molecular weight compounds PRIMA-1 and the structural analog PRIMA-1MET reactivate human mutant p53 in vitro and suppress growth of human tumor xenografts in SCID mice. However, little is known about their effect on mouse mutant p53 in(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is highly lethal due to limited curative options. In high-incidence regions, such as parts of Africa and Southeastern Asia, >50% of cases carry an AGG to AGT mutation at codon 249 of the TP53 gene, considered as a 'signature' of mutagenesis by aflatoxins. The protein product, p53ser249, may represent a therapeutic target for(More)
Small-scale protein purification presents opportunities for accelerated process development of biotherapeutic molecules. Miniaturization of purification conditions reduces time and allows for parallel processing of samples, thus offering increased statistical significance and greater breadth of variables. The ability of the miniaturized platform to be(More)
BACKGROUND The Schizophrenia Caregiver Questionnaire (SCQ) was developed to assess the impact on caregivers of caring for patients with schizophrenia. The objective of this study was to develop a scoring algorithm for the SCQ, and evaluate its measurement properties. METHODS The SCQ was administered to 358 caregivers of patients with schizophrenia(More)
Background: The biological role of amyloid precursor protein (APP) during development is unknown. Results: We show that APP modulates netrin-1-mediated DCC-induced signaling. We also show the requirement for APP in netrin-1-mediated commissural axon outgrowth. Conclusion: APP is important for the netrin-1 role during neuronal navigation. Significance: In(More)
