Two different strains, Aspergillus awamori TGDTh-4 and A. awamori TGP-3 overexpressing a synthetic gene encoding the plant sweet protein thaumatin, showed an unfolded protein response. To facilitate protein secretion, the chaperone BiPA gene was expressed in A. awamori under control of the strong constitutive promoter of the gpdA gene. A good correlation(More)
Understanding of BRCA1/2 interaction with the base excision repair (BER) pathway could improve therapy based on 'synthetic lethality', whose effectiveness is based on homologous recombination deficiency in cells lacking functional BRCA genes. However, poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors failed in some patients and for this reason we explored BER(More)
BACKGROUND Gender-associated epigenetic alterations are poorly investigated in male and female familial breast cancer (fBC). MicroRNAs may contribute to the different biology in men and women particularly related to RASSF1A pathways. METHODS Microarray technology was used to evaluate miRNA profile in 24 male and 43 female fBC. Key results were validated(More)
