The Bcr-Abl fusion gene encodes for the p210Bcr-Abl or p185Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase (TK) implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) or acute lymphoblastic leukemia, respectively. Because Bcr-Abl TK is chaperoned by Hsp90 (90 kDa heat-shock protein), we investigated the effects of novobiocin (NB), an Hsp90 C-terminal inhibitor, on(More)
Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is characterized by unlimited proliferation and suppression of apoptosis, selective advantages for tumor survival, and chemoresistance. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) signaling is involved in both epithelial homeostasis and tumorigenesis, but the relative roles had by LPS receptor subunits CD14 and Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) are poorly(More)
The A1298C polymorphism of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene has been reported to be associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but there are conflicting results from previous studies. The present study aimed to investigate the association between this polymorphism and the risk of HCC using a meta-analysis of the published studies.(More)
