Whole genome comparison of a large collection of mycobacteriophages reveals a continuum of phage genetic diversity
The bacteriophage population is large, dynamic, ancient, and genetically diverse. Limited genomic information shows that phage genomes are mosaic, and the genetic architecture of phage populationsExpand

Local invasiveness of ameloblastoma. Role played by matrix metalloproteinases and proliferative activity
Aims:  Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic neoplasm characterized by local invasiveness and recurrence. In this study we analysed the role played by matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in the localExpand

MYC, FBXW7 and TP53 copy number variation and expression in Gastric Cancer
BackgroundMYC deregulation is a common event in gastric carcinogenesis, usually as a consequence of gene amplification, chromosomal translocations, or posttranslational mechanisms. FBXW7 is aExpand

Brain Intraventricular Injection of Amyloid-β in Zebrafish Embryo Impairs Cognition and Increases Tau Phosphorylation, Effects Reversed by Lithium
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a devastating neurodegenerative disorder with no effective treatment and commonly diagnosed only on late stages. Amyloid-β (Aβ) accumulation and exacerbated tauExpand

SIKVAV, a laminin alpha1-derived peptide, interacts with integrins and increases protease activity of a human salivary gland adenoid cystic carcinoma cell line through the ERK 1/2 signaling pathway.
Adenoid cystic carcinoma is a frequently occurring malignant salivary gland neoplasm. We studied the induction of protease activity by the laminin-derived peptide, SIKVAV, in cells (CAC2) derivedExpand

Decreased expression of ADAMTS-1 in human breast tumors stimulates migration and invasion
BackgroundADAMTS-1 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin motifs) is a member of the ADAMTS family of metalloproteases. Here, we investigated mRNA and protein levels of ADAMTS-1 inExpand

Anti-Angiogenic and Anti-Metastatic Activity of Synthetic Phosphoethanolamine
Background Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the most common type of kidney cancer, and represents the third most common urological malignancy. Despite the advent of targeted therapies for RCC and theExpand

Laminin-1 and SIKVAV a laminin-1-derived peptide, regulate the morphology and protease activity of a human salivary gland adenoid cystic carcinoma cell line.
In a previous paper, we demonstrated that laminin-1 and its derived peptide SIKVAV modulates the morphology of an adenoid cystic carcinoma cell line (CAC2 cells). Light microscopy of CAC2 cells grownExpand

MDM2, P53, P21WAF1 and pAKT protein levels in genesis and behaviour of adenoid cystic carcinoma.
BACKGROUND MDM2, P53, P21(WAF1) and pAKT are proteins associated with the balance between cell death and survival. There are many hypotheses regarding the role of these proteins in salivary glandExpand

Expression of molecules related to AKT pathway as putative regulators of ameloblastoma local invasiveness.
BACKGROUND Ameloblastoma is an odontogenic neoplasm with local invasiveness and high recurrence. We previously suggested that growth factors, matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), and TIMPs influenceExpand
