BACKGROUND The rapid growth of tumor parenchyma leads to chronic hypoxia that can result in the selection of cancer cells with a more aggressive behavior and death-resistant potential to survive and proliferate. Thus, identifying the key molecules and molecular mechanisms responsible for the phenotypic changes associated with chronic hypoxia has valuable(More)
The alternative reading frame protein (p14ARF/ARF) is a key determinant of cell fate, acting as a potent tumor suppressor through a p53/MDM2-dependent pathway or promoting apoptosis in a p53-independent manner. The ARF protein is mainly expressed in the nucleolus and sequestered by nucleophosmin (NPM), whereas ARF-binding proteins, including p53 and MDM2,(More)
HGTD-P is a pro-apoptotic target protein of hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha (HIF-1alpha). It localizes to mitochondria and induces the mitochondrial permeability transition through its interaction with voltage dependent anion channels when overexpressed. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for its induction and its downstream effector molecules(More)
Sir: Cervical cancer is the second most common malignancy in women worldwide. In developing countries , most cases are still diagnosed with locally advanced disease, so the great challenge in the management of advanced cervical cancer remains the control and prevention of distant metastasis. A prominent feature of clinically advanced cervical cancers is(More)
