dUev1a modulates TNF-JNK mediated tumor progression and cell death in Drosophila.
Loss of cell polarity cooperates with oncogenic Ras to induce JNK-dependent tumor growth and invasion. To identify additional genes that modulate tumor progression, we have performed a genetic screenExpand

PP6 Disruption Synergizes with Oncogenic Ras to Promote JNK-Dependent Tumor Growth and Invasion.
RAS genes are frequently mutated in cancers, yet an effective treatment has not been developed, partly because of an incomplete understanding of signaling within Ras-related tumors. To address this,Expand

POSH regulates Hippo signaling through ubiquitin-mediated expanded degradation
Significance Here we performed a genetic screen in Drosophila and identified POSH (Plenty of SH3s), an E3 ubiquitin ligase, as a regulator of Hippo pathway. We found POSH ubiquitinates and degradesExpand

Wingless modulates activator protein-1-mediated tumor invasion
Metastasis begins with a subset of local tumor cells acquiring the potential to invade into surrounding tissues, and remains to be a major obstacle for cancer treatments. More than 90% of cancerExpand

Context-dependent interplay between Hippo and JNK pathway in Drosophila
Both Hippo and JNK signaling have well-established roles in regulating many physiological processes, including cell proliferation, growth, survival, and migration. An increasing body of evidenceExpand

Spz/Toll-6 signal guides organotropic metastasis in Drosophila
ABSTRACT Targeted cell migration plays important roles in developmental biology and disease processes, including in metastasis. Drosophila tumors exhibit traits characteristic of human cancers,Expand

The dark side of hippo signaling: A cancer promoter role
ABSTRACT The Hippo signaling pathway regulates organ size and tissue homeostasis. Given this role it is unsurprising that dysregulation of this pathway has implications for cancer progression. AExpand
