The induction of apoptosis might be a promising treatment for cancers refractory to conventional therapies, such as esophageal cancer. In this study, we examined whether epidermal growth factor–induced growth inhibition results from apoptosis of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cells as a result of STAT1 activation and evaluated whether interferon(More)
We previously reported interferon-γ (IFN-γ)-induced apoptosis in 10 (32%) of 31 esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cell lines. However, the molecular basis of antiproliferative action by IFN-γ remains elusive. Here we demonstrate that IFN-γ induces transcriptional factor Prox1, and we explore the link between Prox1 and the IFN-γ system in ESCC cells.(More)
