Epigenetic alterations of the transcription factor 21 (TCF21) gene have been associated with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and other tumor entities. So far, however, no reports have appeared in the literature on TCF21 protein expression in HNSCC and its relevance as a putative biomarker. TCF21 protein expression was assessed in 74 HNSCCs and(More)
UNLABELLED Angiogenesis is a key feature of liver fibrosis. Although sinusoidal remodeling is believed to contribute to fibrogenesis, the impact of sinusoidal angiogenesis on the resolution of liver fibrosis remains undefined. Myeloid cells, particularly macrophages, constantly infiltrate the fibrotic liver and can profoundly contribute to remodeling of(More)
Pulmonary fibrosis is a progressive disease with unknown etiology that is characterized by extensive remodeling of the lung parenchyma, ultimately resulting in respiratory failure. Lymphatic vessels have been implicated with the development of pulmonary fibrosis, but the role of the lymphatic vasculature in the pathogenesis of pulmonary fibrosis remains(More)
A crucial step in the cellular adaptation to oxygen deficiency is the binding of hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) to hypoxia response elements (HREs) of oxygen-regulated genes. Genome-wide HIF-1α/2α/β DNA-binding studies revealed that the majority of HREs reside distant to the promoter regions, but the function of these distal HREs has only been marginally(More)
We have recently shown that targeting Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) specifically in scar-infiltrating myeloid cells prevented remodeling of the sinusoidal vasculature and abrogated the resolution of murine liver fibrosis, thereby unmasking an unanticipated link between angiogenesis and resolution of fibrosis. In a gain of function approach, we(More)
Chemotherapy remains a mainstay of cancer treatment but its use is often limited by the development of adverse reactions. Severe loss of body weight (cachexia) is a frequent cause of death in cancer patients and is exacerbated by chemotherapy. We show that genetic inactivation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A in myeloid cells prevents(More)
