Oncogenic fusion proteins belong to an important class that disrupts gene expression networks in a cell. Astonishingly, fusion-positive prostate cancer cells enable the multi-gene regulatory capability of miRNAs to remodel the signal transduction landscape, enhancing or antagonizing the transmission of information to downstream effectors. Accumulating(More)
OBJECTIVE Prostate cancer is a polyfactorial molecular anomaly that is offering refractoriness against a broad range of therapeutic drugs. Growth factor receptors are actively implicated in oncogenesis. PDGFR/EGFR mediated exacerbated signaling has a central participation and is contributory in fueling the signal transductions that gear up prostate cancer(More)
Prior research has demonstrated how the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) functions as a multifunctional organelle and as a well-orchestrated protein-folding unit. It consists of sensors which detect stress-induced unfolded/misfolded proteins and it is the place where protein folding is catalyzed with chaperones. During this folding process, an immaculate(More)
It is becoming more understandable that an existing challenge for translational research is the development of pharmaceuticals that appropriately target reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated molecular networks in cancer cells. In line with this approach, there is an overwhelmingly increasing list of many non-marine drugs and marine drugs reported to be(More)
Overwhelmingly increasing advancements in miRNA biology have opened new avenues for pharmaceutical companies to initiate studies on designing effective, safe, and therapeutically active candidates using miRNA mimetics and miRNA inhibitors. In accordance with this approach, development of miravirsen and SPC3649, an LNA-based (locked nucleic acid) antisense(More)
Breast carcinogenesis is a multidimensional disease that has resisted drug-related solutions to date because of heterogeneity, disorganized spatiotemporal behavior of signal transduction cascades, cell cycle checkpoints, cell transition, plasticity, and impaired pro-apoptotic response. These synchronized oncogenic events, including protein–protein(More)
Progress in our understanding of molecular oncology has started to shed light on dysregulation of spatio-temporally controlled signaling pathways, inactivation of tumor suppressor genes, tumour and normal stem cell quiescence, overexpression of oncogenes, extracellular and stromal microenvironments, epigenetics and autophagy. Sequentially and(More)
Cancer is a multifaceted and genomically complex disease, and rapidly emerging scientific evidence is emphasizing on intra-tumor heterogeneity within subpopulations of tumor cells and rapidly developing resistance against different molecular therapeutics. There is an overwhelmingly increasing list of agents currently being tested for efficacy against(More)
Cancer is a multifaceted and genomically complex disease. Research over the years has gradually provided a near complete resolution of cancer landscape and it is now known that genetic/epigenetic mutations, inactivation of tumor suppressors, Overexpression of oncogenes, spatio-temporally dysregulated intracellular signaling cascades, epithelial to(More)
BACKGROUND Cancer is a life threatening complicated diseasethatarises because of wide-ranging environmental and cellular factors. These external and internal stresses disrupt the spatio-temporally controlled mechanisms of the cellular signalings. Accumulating evidence suggests that signal transductions are misrepresented in carcinogenesis and FGFR4 is(More)
