Prostate proliferation is dependent of androgens and many peptide hormones. Recent reports suggest that SSTR2 and SHP-1 were two fundamental components on antiproliferative effect of somatostatin. Many studies on SHP-1 revealed that the expression of this protein was diminished or abolished in several of the cancer cell lines and tissues examined. However,(More)
Phosphorylation and dephosphorylation play an important role in the regulation of growth factor and cytokine signal transduction to modulate cell proliferation, differentiation, survival, and apoptosis. In some cellular systems, the information suggests that EGFR, somatostatin receptors, SHP-1, Akt and PI3K can regulate carcinogenesis implied process(More)
Methylation pattern is presented here for first time as a potential molecular marker of changes on SSTR2A and SHP-1(I) gene promoter related to breast and prostate carcinoma. Our results have shown low concordances with SSTR2A and methylated state in prostate cancer and moderate relationship with unmethylated CpG-27 in breast cancer. We found significant(More)
The activation of proteins by post-translational modification represents an important cellular mechanism for regulating most aspects of biological organization and control, including growth, development, homeostasis, and cellular communication. The complexity of protein modification includes phosphorylation and dephosphorylation, on proteins of different(More)
