Loss of FADD protein expression results in a biased Fas-signaling pathway and correlates with the development of tumoral status in thyroid follicular cells


Downregulation of proapoptotic molecules like Fas or caspase 8, or upregulation of antiapoptotic molecules like FLICE inhibitory protein has been suggested to be a regulatory mechanism set up by tumor cells to block the death signal received via death receptors. In an in-depth study of the Fas/FasL-signaling pathway in thyroid tumor development, we have… (More)
