Zebrafish Dpr2 Inhibits Mesoderm Induction by Promoting Degradation of Nodal Receptors
Nodal proteins, members of the transforming growth factor–β (TGFβ) superfamily, have been identified as key endogenous mesoderm inducers in vertebrates. Precise control of Nodal signaling isExpand

TRAF4 promotes TGF-β receptor signaling and drives breast cancer metastasis.
TGF-β signaling is a therapeutic target in advanced cancers. We identified tumor necrosis factor receptor-associated factor 4 (TRAF4) as a key component mediating pro-oncogenic TGF-β-induced SMAD andExpand

Dapper 1 Antagonizes Wnt Signaling by Promoting Dishevelled Degradation*
Wnt signaling plays pivotal roles in the regulation of embryogenesis and cancer development. Xenopus Dapper (Dpr) was identified as an interacting protein for Dishevelled (Dvl), a Wnt signalingExpand

Nuclear receptor NR4A1 promotes breast cancer invasion and metastasis by activating TGF-β signalling.
In advanced cancers, the TGF-β pathway acts as an oncogenic factor and is considered to be a therapeutic target. Here using a genome-wide cDNA screen, we identify nuclear receptor NR4A1 as a strongExpand

Resveratrol Inhibits Invasion and Metastasis of Colorectal Cancer Cells via MALAT1 Mediated Wnt/β-Catenin Signal Pathway
Resveratrol, extracted from Chinese herbal medicine Polygonum cuspidatum, is known to inhibit invasion and metastasis of human colorectal cancer (CRC), in which long non-coding Metastasis AssociatedExpand

HIF-1-mediated suppression of acyl-CoA dehydrogenases and fatty acid oxidation is critical for cancer progression.
Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) mediates a metabolic switch that blocks the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA in cancer cells. Here, we report that HIF-1α also inhibits fatty acid β-oxidationExpand

NF-κB Activity Is Required for the Deregulation of c-myc Expression by the Immunoglobulin Heavy Chain Enhancer*
The c-myc gene is translocated to one of the immunoglobulin genes in Burkitt's lymphoma resulting in deregulated expression of c-myc. Several enhancers have been shown to be important for expressionExpand

YAP antagonizes innate antiviral immunity and is targeted for lysosomal degradation through IKKɛ-mediated phosphorylation
The transcription regulator YAP controls organ size by regulating cell growth, proliferation and apoptosis. However, whether YAP has a role in innate antiviral immunity is largely unknown. Here weExpand

Fine‐tuning BMP7 signalling in adipogenesis by UBE2O/E2‐230K‐mediated monoubiquitination of SMAD6
SMAD6 is a crucial feedback inhibitory regulator of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)/SMAD signalling. Although little is known regarding the post‐transcriptional modification of inhibitory SMADs andExpand
