Axonal growth is fundamental to the establishment of neuronal connectivity in the brain. However, the cell-intrinsic mechanisms that govern axonal morphogenesis remain to be elucidated. The ubiquitin ligase Cdh1-anaphase-promoting complex (Cdh1-APC) suppresses the growth of axons in postmitotic neurons. Here, we report that Cdh1-APC operates in the nucleus(More)
Axon growth is critical to the establishment of neuronal connectivity. The E3 ubiquitin ligase Cdh1-anaphase-promoting complex (Cdh1-APC) and its substrate the transcriptional modulator SnoN form a cell-intrinsic pathway that orchestrates axonal morphogenesis in the mammalian brain. How the Cdh1-APC/SnoN pathway is controlled in the nervous system remained(More)
The objective of our retrospective institutional experience is to report the overall response rate, R0 resection rate, progression-free survival, and safety/toxicity of neoadjuvant FOLFIRINOX (5-fluorouracil [5-FU], oxaliplatin, irinotecan, and leucovorin) and chemoradiation in patients with locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC). Patients with LAPC(More)
Members of the ING (inhibitor of growth) family of chromatin modifying proteins (ING1-ING5) have emerged as critical regulators of gene expression and cellular responses, suggesting that the ING proteins may impinge on specific signal transduction pathways and their mediated effects. Here, we demonstrate a role for the protein ING2 in mediating responses by(More)
The transcriptional corepressor SnoN is a critical regulator of axonal morphogenesis, but how SnoN drives axonal growth is unknown. Here, we report that gene-profiling analyses in cerebellar granule neurons reveal that the large majority of genes altered upon SnoN knockdown are surprisingly downregulated, suggesting that SnoN may activate transcription in(More)
The ubiquitin ligase Cdh1-anaphase promoting complex (Cdh1-APC) plays a key role in the control of axonal morphogenesis in the mammalian brain, but the mechanisms that regulate neuronal Cdh1-APC function remain incompletely understood. Here, we have characterized the effect of phosphorylation of Cdh1 at cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) sites on Cdh1-APC(More)
Control of neuronal positioning is fundamental to normal brain development. However, the cell-intrinsic mechanisms that govern neuronal positioning remain to be elucidated. Here, we report that the spliced protein products of the transcriptional regulator SnoN, SnoN1 and SnoN2, harbor opposing functions in the coordinate regulation of neuronal branching and(More)
UNLABELLED The International Society of Urological Pathology recommends that Gleason score (GS) 8 prostate cancer (PC) is one prognostic category, yet heterogeneity in cancer control potentially exists amongst men with GS 3+5/5+3 versus GS 4+4 PC. We compared PC-specific mortality (PCSM) and all-cause mortality (ACM) risk among men with GS 3+5/5+3 versus GS(More)
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a fundamental cellular process that contributes to epithelial tissue morphogenesis during normal development and in tumor invasiveness and metastasis. The transcriptional regulator SnoN robustly influences EMT in response to the cytokine TGFβ, but the mechanisms that regulate the fundamental role of SnoN in(More)
PURPOSE To explore whether a subgroup of men with unfavorable-risk prostate cancer (PC) exists in whom high-dose radiation therapy (RT) alone is sufficient to avoid excess PC death due to competing risk from cardiometabolic comorbidity. METHODS AND MATERIALS This was a cohort study of 7399 men in whom comorbidity (including congestive heart failure,(More)
