2ME2 inhibits tumor growth and angiogenesis by disrupting microtubules and dysregulating HIF.
Inhibition of angiogenesis is an important new modality for cancer treatment. 2-methoxyestradiol (2ME2) is a novel antitumor and antiangiogenic agent, currently in clinical trials, whose molecularExpand

Androgens stimulate hypoxia-inducible factor 1 activation via autocrine loop of tyrosine kinase receptor/phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinase/protein kinase B in prostate cancer cells.
PURPOSE Androgen deprivation is implicated in reducing neoangiogenesis in prostate cancer (PCA). Androgens regulate the expression of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF); hypoxia stimulatesExpand

Unusual Alternative Splicing within the Human Kallikrein Genes KLK2 and KLK3 Gives Rise to Novel Prostate-specific Proteins*
Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and human kallikrein 2 are closely related products of the human kallikrein genesKLK3 and KLK2, respectively. Both PSA and human kallikrein 2 are produced and secretedExpand

SEPT9_v1 Up-regulates Hypoxia-inducible Factor 1 by Preventing Its RACK1-mediated Degradation*
A critical mediator of the cellular response to hypoxia is hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1). Increased levels of HIF-1α are often associated with increased tumor metastasis, therapeutic resistance,Expand

Geldanamycin induces degradation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha protein via the proteosome pathway in prostate cancer cells.
Hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) is a heterodimeric transcription factor composed of alpha and beta subunits. HIF-1 is critically involved in cellular responses to hypoxia, glycolysis, andExpand

Hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) in human tumorigenesis.
Hypoxia is a major event that occurs in most solid tumors. Intratumoral hypoxia is sufficient to activate the key transcription factor, hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) that mediates the activation ofExpand

1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (Calcitriol) inhibits hypoxia-inducible factor-1/vascular endothelial growth factor pathway in human cancer cells.
In vitro and in vivo studies have shown that 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) [1,25(OH)(2)D(3)] inhibits angiogenesis in cancer. We now examined whether the antiangiogenic effects of 1,25(OH)(2)D(3)Expand

Efficacy of sildenafil as adjuvant therapy to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor in alleviating premature ejaculation.
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy of sildenafil and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor in alleviating premature ejaculation (PE) in patients in whom other treatments had failed. METHODSExpand
