Histone acetylation is a posttranslational modification that plays a role in regulating gene expression. More recently, other nonhistone proteins have been identified to be acetylated which can regulate their function, stability, localization, or interaction with other molecules. Modulating acetylation with histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) has been(More)
New therapies for glioblastoma (GBM) are needed, as five-year survival is <10%. The proteasome inhibitor marizomib (MRZ) has inhibitory and death-inducing properties unique from previous inhibitors such as bortezomib (BTZ), and has not been well examined in GBM. We evaluated the mechanism of death and in vivo properties of MRZ in GBM. The activation(More)
The BCR-ABL1 oncogene is a tyrosine kinase that activates many signaling pathways, resulting in the induction of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Kinase inhibitors, such as imatinib, have been developed for the treatment of CML; however, the terminal, blast crisis phase of the disease remains a clinical challenge. Blast crisis CML is difficult to treat due(More)
