The MCM (minichromosome maintenance protein) protein family was identified for the first time in budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The subgroup consists of MCM proteins 2-9, that possess the characteristic ATPase domain (MCM box). There are also MCM1 and MCM10, which are important in DNA replication, but they do not possess the specific MCM box. The(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) belongs to the diverse group of sexually transmitted viruses that manifest affinity to the squamous epithelia of the skin and mucous membranes. Over 100 types of HPV have been described and identified in human tissues, and it has been proved that persistent infection with high-risk types of the virus (types 16 and 18 in(More)
MCM2, MCM3 and MCM7 are minichromosome maintenance proteins found in dividing cells and they play a role in DNA synthesis. Increased MCM expression level is observed in cells of different cancer types. Additionally, metallothioneins (MT-I/II) are involved in control of cell proliferation and differentiation and changes of their expression are observed in(More)
BACKGROUND The role of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection as an etiological factor of respiratory tract papillomas has been described in numerous studies, however its role in malignant transformation has not been clearly defined. Depending on their oncogenic potential they have been classified as low- and high-risk HPVs. We analyzed the expression of four(More)
Enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) is a human pathogen using type III secretion system for delivery of proteins directly into the human host. The system contains a single ATPase, EscN, which is essential for uncoupling of proteins from their complexes with chaperones before the delivery. The structure of EscN ATPase (PDB code: 2obm) was used to screen(More)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) belongs to the Papillomaviridae family and infects squamous cells and mucous membranes of humans. Various studies conducted over the last years have shown a correlation between HPV infection and carcinogenesis process. The DNA of the virus is detected in approximately 20% of cancers of the upper respiratory tract. The presence of(More)
In our previous studies we showed that in breast cancer podoplanin-positive cancer-associated fibroblasts correlated positively with tumor size, grade of malignancy, lymph node metastasis, lymphovascular invasion and poor patients' outcome. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to assess if podoplanin expressed by fibroblasts can affect(More)
BACKGROUND The deregulation of the cell cycle is crucial for the processes of carcinogenesis and tumor progression. The cell cycle is under the control of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) and their inhibitors (CDKIs). Proteins p16 and p27 are CDKIs, and their altered expression has been noticed in many types of cancers. The aim of this study has been to(More)
The phenomenon of cancer cell resistance to chemotherapeutics is the main cause of insensitivity to anticancer therapy. Thus, the current challenge remains searching for substances sensitising the activity of cytostatic drugs. In this respect, resveratrol is a very promising therapeutic agent. It has pleiotropic effect on cancer cells, which can play a key(More)
