Receptor-interacting protein 140 (RIP140) is a negative transcriptional coregulator of nuclear receptors such as estrogen, retinoic acid or glucocorticoid receptors. Recruitment of RIP140 results in an inhibition of target gene expression through different repressive domains interacting with histone deacetylases or C-terminal binding proteins. In this(More)
Deregulation of the Wnt/APC/β-catenin signaling pathway is an important consequence of tumor suppressor APC dysfunction. Genetic and molecular data have established that disruption of this pathway contributes to the development of colorectal cancer. Here, we demonstrate that the transcriptional coregulator RIP140 regulates intestinal homeostasis and(More)
Proteolytic cleavage of various cancer-related substrates by the proprotein convertases (PC) was reported to be important in the processes of neoplasia. These enzymes are inhibited by their naturally occurring inhibitors, the prosegments (ppPC), and by the engineered general PC inhibitor, the serpin variant alpha1-PDX. In the present study, we sought to(More)
RIP140 is a transcriptional coregulator involved in energy homeostasis and ovulation which is controlled at the transcriptional level by several nuclear receptors. We demonstrate here that RIP140 is a novel target gene of the E2F1 transcription factor. Bioinformatics analysis, gel shift assay, and chromatin immunoprecipitation demonstrate that the RIP140(More)
Most ovarian cancers are estrogen-positive and hormonal treatments using anti-estrogens or aromatase inhibitors are under investigation for treating the tumors that are resistant to conventional therapies. In this study, the long-term effects of two anti-estrogens, namely 4-hydroxytamoxifen and fulvestrant (or ICI182,780), were investigated in ERα-positive(More)
Ligand-dependent corepressor (LCoR) is a transcriptional repressor of ligand-activated estrogen receptors (ERs) and other transcription factors that acts both by recruiting histone deacetylases and C-terminal binding proteins. Here, we first studied LCOR gene expression in breast cancer cell lines and tissues. We detected two mRNAs variants, LCoR and LCoR2(More)
Chemotherapeutic agents combining several active groups within a single molecule can modulate multiple cellular pathways and, thus, exhibit higher efficacy than single-target drugs. In this study, six new hybrid compounds combining tamoxifen (TAM) or ferrocifen (FcTAM) structural motifs with suberoylanilide hydroxamic acid (SAHA) were synthesised and(More)
The proprotein convertases (PCs) are serine proteases involved in various physiological processes and their overactivity or inactivity has been linked to different disorders. PCs are responsible for the proteolytic processing of various polypeptide precursors. Here, we discuss the effect of their N-terminal prosegments on various PC substrates processing(More)
RIP140 is a transcriptional coregulator, (also known as NRIP1), which finely tunes the activity of various transcription factors and plays very important physiological roles. Noticeably, the RIP140 gene has been implicated in the control of energy expenditure, behavior, cognition, mammary gland development and intestinal homeostasis. RIP140 is also involved(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common human cancers and the cause of about 700000 deaths per year worldwide. Deregulation of the WNT/β-catenin pathway is a key event in CRC initiation. This pathway interacts with other nuclear signaling pathways, including members of the nuclear receptor superfamily and their transcription coregulators. In this(More)
