Inhibition of constitutive active signaling pathways, which are a characteristic phenomenon for many tumors, can be an effective therapeutic strategy. In contrast, oncogenic transcription factors, often activated by mutational events, are in general less amenable to small-molecule inhibition despite their obvious importance as therapeutic targets.

A number of drugs developed against cancer-specific molecular targets have been shown to offer survival benefits alone or in combination with standard treatments, especially for those cases in which tumor pathogenesis is dominated by a single molecular abnormality. One example for such a tumor type is alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma (aRMS), which is characterized(More)
Utrophin and dystrophin present two large proteins that link the intracellular actin cytoskeleton to the extracellular matrix via the C-terminal-associated protein complex. Here we describe a novel short N-terminal isoform of utrophin and its protein product in various rat tissues (N-utro, 62  kDa, amino acids 1-539, comprising the actin-binding domain plus(More)
