Galanin and its receptors, GALR1 and GALR2, are tumor suppressors and represent therapeutic targets in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). In the present study, it was demonstrated that the re‑expression of GALR1 in GALR1 and GALR2‑negative HNSCC cells suppresses tumor cell proliferation. This is mediated via extracellular‑regulated protein(More)
Therapeutic outcome in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is poor in most advanced cases. To improve therapeutic efficiency, novel therapeutic targets and prognostic factors must be discovered. Our studies have identified several G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) as promising candidates. Significant epigenetic silencing of GPCR expression(More)
