OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to further define the signal transduction pathways leading to hypoxia-inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) erythropoietin (EPO) gene expression. MATERIALS AND METHODS Human hepatocellular carcinoma cells (Hep3B) were exposed to hypoxia (1% oxygen) and examined for mRNA expression, as well as gene transactivation with RT-PCR and(More)
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is associated with high mortality, although individual outcomes are highly variable. Identification of patients with increased risk of disease progression can guide customizing management plan according to disease severity. Profilin-1 (Pfn1) has been recently identified as overexpressed in metastatic ccRCC compared(More)
Papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) is the second most common RCC subtype and can be further classified as type 1 (pRCC1) or 2 (pRCC2). There is currently minimal understanding of pRCC1 pathogenesis, and treatment decisions are mostly empirical. The aim of this study was to identify biological pathways that are involved in pRCC1 pathogenesis using an(More)
