Down-regulation of 14-3-3zeta suppresses anchorage-independent growth of lung cancer cells through anoikis activation.


The family of 14-3-3 proteins has emerged as critical regulators of diverse cellular responses under both physiological and pathological conditions. Here, we report an important role of 14-3-3zeta in tumorigenesis through a mechanism that involves anoikis resistance. 14-3-3zeta is up-regulated in a number of cancer types, including lung cancer. Through an… (More)
