Kif14 overexpression accelerates murine retinoblastoma development
The mitotic kinesin KIF14 has an essential role in the recruitment of proteins required for the final stages of cytokinesis. Genomic gain and/or overexpression of KIF14 has been documented inExpand

Ferrochelatase is a therapeutic target for ocular neovascularization
Ocular neovascularization underlies major blinding eye diseases such as “wet” age‐related macular degeneration (AMD). Despite the successes of treatments targeting the vascular endothelial growthExpand

Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of photoaffinity probes of antiangiogenic homoisoflavonoids.
A naturally occurring homoisoflavonoid, cremastranone (1) inhibited angiogenesis in vitro and in vivo. We developed an analogue SH-11037 (2) which is more potent than cremastranone in human retinalExpand

Antiangiogenic Activity and Cytotoxicity of Triterpenoids and Homoisoflavonoids from Massonia pustulata and Massonia bifolia.
The Hyacinthaceae family (sensu APGII), with approximately 900 species in around 70 genera, plays a significant role in traditional medicine in Africa as well as across Europe and the Middle and FarExpand

Enantioselective Synthesis of Homoisoflavanones by Asymmetric Transfer Hydrogenation and Their Biological Evaluation for Antiangiogenic Activity.
Neovascular eye diseases are a major cause of blindness. Excessive angiogenesis is a feature of several conditions, including wet age-related macular degeneration, proliferative diabetic retinopathy,Expand

Ref-1/APE1 Inhibition with Novel Small Molecules Blocks Ocular Neovascularization
Ocular neovascular diseases like wet age-related macular degeneration are a major cause of blindness. Novel therapies are greatly needed for these diseases. One appealing antiangiogenic target isExpand

The Antiangiogenic Activity of Naturally Occurring and Synthetic Homoisoflavonoids from the Hyacinthaceae ( sensu APGII).
Excessive blood vessel formation in the eye is implicated in wet age-related macular degeneration, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, neovascular glaucoma, and retinopathy of prematurity, which areExpand

Phenotypic Screening of Chemical Libraries Enriched by Molecular Docking to Multiple Targets Selected from Glioblastoma Genomic Data.
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an incurable disease. Like most solid tumors, GBM harbors multiple overexpressed and mutated genes. Small molecules that selectively modulate these targets and theirExpand

Observations on spontaneous tumor formation in mice overexpressing mitotic kinesin Kif14
The KIF14 locus is gained and overexpressed in various malignancies, with prognostic relevance. Its protein product, a mitotic kinesin, accelerates growth of normal mammary epithelial cells in vitroExpand
