Genomic recombination requires cutting, processing, and rejoining of DNA by endonucleases, polymerases, and ligases, among other factors. We have proposed that DNA recombination mechanisms may contribute to long-term memory (LTM) formation in the brain. Our previous studies with the nucleoside analog 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine triphosphate (ara-CTP),(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common brain tumor in adults, is neurologically destructive and has a dismal response to virtually all therapeutic modalities. One phenomenon that can contribute to this complexity is the presence of a relatively small subset of glioma stem cells (GSCs) within the tumor and the activation of pathways that control(More)
As the most common brain tumor, glioma is featured with poor prognosis due to its resistance to current therapeutic strategies. The elucidation of etiology is believed to facilitate the development of novel effective anti-glioma treatment modalities. As a confirmed oncogenic microRNA (miRNA) in many other types of cancers, the role of miR-155 in glioma is(More)
Glioma is among the most common human malignancies with poor prognosis. Glioma stem cells (GSCs) are the culprit of glioma, suggesting that GSCs are potential therapeutic targets. Notch signaling pathway plays a pivotal role for the function of GSCs, implying that suppression of Notch pathway may be an effective strategy for GSC-targeting therapy. In this(More)
Natural proteins are often confined within their local microenvironments, such as three-dimensional confinement in organelles or two-dimensional confinement in lipid rafts on cytoplasmic membrane. Spatial confinement restricts proteins' entropic freedom, forces their lateral interaction, and induces new properties that the same proteins lack at the soluble(More)
Malignant glioma is the most common intracranial tumor with poor prognosis. It is well believed that glioma stem cells (GSCs) are responsible for the initiation and progression of glioma. Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription (Jak/STAT3) pathway plays a key role in the functions of GSCs. However, the regulatory mechanism of Jak/STAT3(More)
