Survival rates associated with pancreatic cancer remain dismal despite advancements in detection and experimental treatment strategies. Genetically engineered mouse models of pancreatic tumorigenesis have gained considerable attention based on their ability to recapitulate key clinical features of human disease including chemotherapeutic resistance and(More)
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling regulates cell proliferation and differentiation, which contributes to development and disease. Upon binding TGF-β, the type I receptor (TGFBRI) binds TGFBRII, leading to the activation of the transcription factors SMAD2 and SMAD3. Using an RNA interference screen of the human kinome and a live-cell reporter(More)
PURPOSE The emerging need for rational combination treatment approaches led us to test the concept that cotargeting MEK and CDK4/6 would prove efficacious in KRAS-mutant (KRAS(mt)) colorectal cancers, where upregulated CDK4 and hyperphosphorylated retinoblastoma (RB) typify the vast majority of tumors. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Initial testing was carried out(More)
