In light of the potential use of the thiazolidinedione family of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) agonists in prostate cancer treatment, this study assessed the mechanism by which these agents suppress prostate-specific antigen (PSA) secretion in prostate cancer cells. Two lines of evidence indicate that the effect of(More)
Activating mutations in the gene encoding BRAF are the most commonly identified oncogenic abnormalities in papillary thyroid cancer. In vitro and in vivo models have demonstrated that overexpression of activated BRAF induces malignant transformation and aggressive tumour behaviour. BRAF and other RAF kinases are frequently activated by other thyroid(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic activation of the angiotensin II (AngII) type 1 receptor (AT-1) is a central event in the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD), in part through enhanced expression of TGF-beta, and AT-1 receptor blockade inhibits the progression to CKD in a variety of disease states. The AT-1 receptor is a heptahelical Gaq/11-coupled receptor(More)
