Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality. Therapies against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are particularly needed, as this type of cancer is relatively insensitive to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. We recently identified GGTI compounds that are designed to block geranylgeranylation and membrane association of signaling proteins(More)
DLC1 (Deleted in Liver Cancer 1) gene encodes a RhoGTPase-activating protein (RhoGAP), which exerts most of its tumor suppressor functions through suppression of small Rho GTPases proteins RhoA, RhoB, RhoC and to some degree Cdc42, but not Rac. RhoGTPases are implicated in NF-κB activation in highly invasive prostate carcinoma (PCA), with consequences on(More)
During the neoplastic process tumour cells frequently acquire resistance to the antiproliferative signals of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta). Here we examined a human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line (Hep3B-TS) sensitive to TGF-beta signalling, and a derivative line (Hep3B-TR) rendered resistant to TGF-beta by stepwise exposure to TGF-beta(1).(More)
BACKGROUND Head and neck paragangliomas are rare tumours and can arise as a part of inherited syndromes. Their association with thymic tumour is not well known. CASE DESCRIPTION This report describes a female patient who presented with right sided neck paragangliomas. The histology of the tumour was consistent with paraganlioma. Few years later her MRI(More)
