Previous studies have shown that c-Jun NH 2-terminal kinase (JNK) belongs to the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) family of signal transduction components that are rapidly initiated and activated by many extracellular stimuli. However, the potential role of JNK in mediating tumor promotion and carcinogenesis is unclear. We show here that in(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer in young women tends to have a natural history of aggressive disease for which rates of recurrence are higher than in breast cancers detected later in life. Little is known about the genetic pathways that underlie early-onset breast cancer. Here we report the discovery of DEAR1 (ductal epithelium-associated RING Chromosome 1), a(More)
c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase (JNK) 1 and JNK2 have been assumed to complement each other and mediate the same or similar biological functions. However, our recent reports indicated that 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene/12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate-induced tumor development is suppressed in Jnk2 knockout mice but enhanced in Jnk1 knockout mice. In the(More)
