SOX2 promotes tumorigenesis and increases the anti-apoptotic property of human prostate cancer cell.
SRY-related HMG-box gene 2 (SOX2) is one of the key regulatory genes that maintain the pluripotency and self-renewal properties in embryonic stem cells. Here we used immunohistochemistry to analyzeExpand

SOX2 promotes tumor metastasis by stimulating epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition via regulation of WNT/β-catenin signal network.
SOX2 was reported to promote metastasis in various tumor tissues; however the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. Here, we disclosed that SOX2 improves metastasis of breast and prostate cancerExpand

Emerging roles of the p38 MAPK and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathways in oncogene-induced senescence.
Oncogene-induced senescence (OIS) is a tumor-suppressing response that must be disrupted for cancer to develop. Mechanistic insights into OIS have begun to emerge. Activation of the p53/p21(WAF1)Expand

SOX2 Gene Regulates the Transcriptional Network of Oncogenes and Affects Tumorigenesis of Human Lung Cancer Cells
Recent studies demonstrated that cancer stem cells (CSCs) have higher tumorigenesis properties than those of differentiated cancer cells and that transcriptional factor-SOX2 plays a vital role inExpand

Identification of JL1037 as a novel, specific, reversible lysine-specific demethylase 1 inhibitor that induce apoptosis and autophagy of AML cells
Lysine-specific demethylase 1 (LSD1) has been recognized as a potential therapeutic target for acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Herein, we identified a novel LSD1 inhibitor, JL1037, via Computer AidedExpand

STIM1 accelerates cell senescence in a remodeled microenvironment but enhances the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in prostate cancer
The importance of store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) and the role of its key molecular regulators, STIM1 and ORAI1, in the development of cancer are emerging. Here, we report an unexpected dualExpand

Expression of Sox2 in breast cancer cells promotes the recruitment of M2 macrophages to tumor microenvironment.
Transcriptional factor Sox2 promotes tumor metastasis; however its regulatory effect on tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs, M2 phenotype) has not been defined. This study disclosed concomitantExpand

Targeting FLT3 in acute myeloid leukemia using ligand-based chimeric antigen receptor-engineered T cells
BackgroundChimeric antigen receptor-engineered T (CAR-T) cells have extraordinary effect in treating lymphoblastic leukemia. However, treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) using CAR-T cellsExpand

FHL2 interacts with iASPP and impacts the biological functions of leukemia cells
iASPP is an inhibitory member of apoptosis-stimulating proteins of p53 (ASPP) family, which inhibits p53-dependent apoptosis. iASPP was highly expressed in acute leukemia, inhibited leukemia cellsExpand
