Actin cytoskeleton disruption in host cells has been demonstrated for PTPases from pathogenic microorganisms. In this work, we analysed whether the secreted acid phosphatase from Entamoeba histolytica has phosphotyrosine phosphatase activity and the possibility that this activity may participate in damaging host cells. The secreted acid phosphatase of E.(More)
Previously, we characterized a 140-kDa protein from Entamoeba histolytica as a beta1-integrin-like molecule that binds fibronectin. In this work we present data showing that the amoebic receptor is associated with another surface molecule, the 220-kDa lectin, and with protein tyrosine kinase activity. By immunoprecipitation with the alphabeta1Eh antibody,(More)
AIM BoNTA is used in the treatment of ophthalmological disorders, muscular hyperactivity and pain. In recent years it has been described that BoNTA reduces cellular viability and induces apoptosis in prostate cells lines. Studies about the effect of BoNTA are no well known. There have been studies about the effect of BoNTA on the expression levels of(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases) have been described as virulence factors in different pathogenic microorganisms. The pathogenic process by Enatamoeba histolytica is a multifactorial phenomenon that occurs in 3 steps: adhesion, cytolytic and cytotoxic effect, and phagocytosis. Lytic enzymes may participate during the second part of this process. In(More)
New molecular markers of cancer had emerged with novel applications in cancer prevention and therapeutics, including for breast cancer of unknown causes, which has a high impact on the health of women worldwide. The purpose of this research was to determine protein and mRNA expression of synaptic vesicle 2 (SV2) isoforms A, B and C in breast cancer cell(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the recent incidence and mortality trends for breast cancer in Mexican females. Data between 2000 and 2010 from the Department of Epidemiology of the Ministry of Health, and International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) were analyzed. Age-standardized rates (ASRs) and annual percent changes (APCs) were(More)
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer, and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in US women (Siegel et al., 2012). Breast cancer is functionally classified based on molecular profiles. Estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and ErbB-2/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER-2) status are molecular markers used to(More)
The objetive of this study was to explore a bibliometric approach to quantitatively assess current research trends with regard to breast cancer in Mexico. Articles were analyzed by scientific output and research performances of individuals, institutes, and collaborative countries with Mexico. Data were retrieved from the Web of Science database from 2003 to(More)
