LRP16 gene expression is induced by 17-betaestradiol (E2) via estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) in MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. A previous study also demonstrated that ectopic expression of LRP16 gene promoted MCF-7 cell proliferation. To explore the mechanism of hormone-induced LRP16 gene expression, the LRP16 gene promoter region (-2600 to -24 bp(More)
BACKGROUND Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is overexpressed in a variety of cancers, such as breast, colon, prostate, ovary, and lung cancers. However, the mechanism by which extracellular matrix fibronectin stimulates lung cancer cell migration and invasion through FAK remains to be investigated. METHODS The signalling pathways in fibronectin-mediated lung(More)
