Through silencing tumor suppressor genes, epigenetic changes can activate signaling pathways important to cancer development. In this report, we found an epigenetic contribution to the aberrant activation of wnt signaling in human gastric cancer. CXXC4 (CXXC finger protein 4) was identified as a novel target of EZH2 (enhancer of zeste homolog 2), and EZH2(More)
The transmembrane glycoprotein, CUB (complement C1r/C1s, Uegf, Bmp1) domain-containing protein 1 (CDCP1) is overexpressed in several cancer types and is a predictor of poor prognosis for patients on standard of care therapies. Phosphorylation of CDCP1 tyrosine sites is induced upon loss of cell adhesion and is thought to be linked to metastatic potential of(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are involved in diverse biological processes, including cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Results from the MTT assay revealed that BMP-2 significantly inhibited the proliferation of MDA-MB‑231 and MCF-7 breast cancer cells. The flow cytometric analysis demonstrated that(More)
