Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) is a rare, but aggressive and chemoresistant tumor with dismal prognosis. Most ATCs harbor mutations that activate RAS/MAPK/ERK and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathways. Therefore, we investigated and correlated the expression of phosphatase and tensin homolog, pERK, and pAKT proteins as well as mutations of BRAF, RAS, and p53 genes in(More)
Glioblastoma is the most frequent and malignant human brain tumor. High level of genomic instability detected in glioma cells implies that numerous genetic alterations accumulate during glioma pathogenesis. We investigated alterations in AP-PCR DNA profiles of 30 glioma patients, and detected specific changes in 11 genes not previously associated with this(More)
Cyclin D1 is one of the major cellular oncogenes, overexpressed in number of human cancers, including non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). However, it does not exert tumorigenic activity by itself, but rather cooperates with other altered oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Therefore, in the present study, we have examined mutual role of cyclin D1, KRAS, and(More)
Current high lung cancer mortality rates are mainly due to the occurrence of metastases and therapeutic resistance. Therefore, simultaneous targeting of these processes may be a valid approach for the treatment of this type of cancer. Here, we assessed relationships between CXC chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) and focal adhesion kinase (FAK) gene(More)
Achieving an effective treatment of cancer is difficult, particularly when resistance to conventional chemotherapy is developed. P-glycoprotein (P-gp) activity governs multi-drug resistance (MDR) development in different cancer cell types. Identification of anti-cancer agents with the potential to kill cancer cells and at the same time inhibit MDR is(More)
