Glycolysis inhibition for anticancer treatment
Most cancer cells exhibit increased glycolysis and use this metabolic pathway for generation of ATP as a main source of their energy supply. This phenomenon is known as the Warburg effect and isExpand

Death-associated protein kinase 1 phosphorylates Pin1 and inhibits its prolyl isomerase activity and cellular function.
Pin1 is a phospho-specific prolyl isomerase that regulates numerous key signaling molecules and whose deregulation contributes to disease notably cancer. However, since prolyl isomerases are oftenExpand

Up-regulation of soyasaponin biosynthesis by methyl jasmonate in cultured cells of Glycyrrhiza glabra.
Exogenously applied methyl jasmonate (MeJA) stimulated soyasaponin biosynthesis in cultured cells of Glycyrrhiza glabra (common licorice). mRNA level and enzyme activity of beta-amyrin synthaseExpand

Negative regulation of the stability and tumor suppressor function of Fbw7 by the Pin1 prolyl isomerase.
Fbw7 is the substrate recognition component of the Skp1-Cullin-F-box (SCF)-type E3 ligase complex and a well-characterized tumor suppressor that targets numerous oncoproteins for destruction. GenomicExpand

Differential expression of three oxidosqualene cyclase mRNAs in Glycyrrhiza glabra.
The cultured cells and intact plants of Glycyrrhiza glabra (Fabaceae) produce betulinic acid and oleanane-type triterpene saponins (soyasaponins and glycyrrhizin). To elucidate the regulation ofExpand

Prolyl isomerase Pin1 acts downstream of miR200c to promote cancer stem-like cell traits in breast cancer.
Breast cancer stem-like cells (BCSC) have been implicated in tumor growth, metastasis, drug resistance, and relapse but druggable targets in appropriate subsets of this cell population have yet to beExpand

MAPK signaling in inflammation-associated cancer development
Mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases comprise a family of protein-serine/threonine kinases, which are highly conserved in protein structures from unicellular eukaryotic organisms to multicellularExpand

A role for focal adhesion kinase signaling in tumor necrosis factor-alpha-dependent matrix metalloproteinase-9 production in a cholangiocarcinoma cell line, CCKS1.
We have previously reported that tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) stimulation of CCKS1, a cell line established from cholangiocarcinoma with i.p. dissemination, dramatically increased matrixExpand

Preparation of nanobubbles for ultrasound imaging and intracelluar drug delivery.
Echogenic bubble formulations have wide applications in both disease diagnosis and therapy. In the current study, nanobubbles were prepared and the contrast agent function was evaluated in order toExpand
