Sex steroids, through their receptors, have potent effects on the signal pathways involved in osteogenic or myogenic differentiation. However, a considerable segment of those signal pathways has a prominent role in epithelial neoplastic transformation. The capability to intervene locally has focused on specific ligands for the receptors. Nevertheless, many signals are mapped to interactions of steroid receptor motifs with heterologous regulatory proteins. Some of those proteins interact with… Expand
Glucocorticoid and proteasome inhibitor impact on the leukemic lymphoblast: Multiple, diverse signals converging on a few key downstream regulators
TLDR
Results from several ongoing studies indicate convergence of genomically diverse signal pathways to a limited number of key downstream regulators of apoptosis, which can be exploited to address the problem of genetic heterogeneity in acute leukemia. Expand
Drugs acting on homeostasis: challenging cancer cell adaptation
TLDR
It is shown that pathways of proteostasis and energy generation regulate common transcription factors, which induce transcription factor proteins that control expression of cytokines and regulators of apoptosis, cell division, differentiation, metabolism, and response to hormones. Expand
Dynamic aberrant NF-κB spurs tumorigenesis: a new model encompassing the microenvironment.
TLDR
Study of NF-κB actually leads to a far more dynamic perspective on cancer: tumors caused by diverse oncogenes apparently evolve into cancer after loss of feedback regulation for NF-σ, which alters the cellular phenotype and the expression of hormonal mediators. Expand
Dissecting pharmacological effects of chloroquine in cancer treatment: interference with inflammatory signaling pathways
TLDR
The work addressing the role of chloroquines in the homeostasis of mammalian tissue, and the potential strengths and weaknesses concerning their use in cancer therapy are reviewed. Expand
Aberrant control of NF-κB in cancer permits transcriptional and phenotypic plasticity, to curtail dependence on host tissue: molecular mode
TLDR
The molecular mode of NF-κB regulation with a few characteristic examples of target genes is described, which enables profound local changes in tissue function and composition. Expand
Inflammation and tissue homeostasis: the NF-κB system in physiology and malignant progression
TLDR
Disruption of key feedback modules for NF-κB in certain cell types facilitates the survival of clones with genomic aberrations, and protects them from being recognized and eliminated by the immune system, to enable thereby carcinogenesis. Expand
N-bromotaurine surrogates for loss of antiproliferative response and enhances cisplatin efficacy in cancer cells with impaired glucocorticoid receptor.
TLDR
The ability of N-bromotaurine, a naturally occurring, small-molecule, nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drug which is under consideration for use interchangeably/in replacement to GCs in skin inflammations, to restore antiproliferative response of GC-resistant cancer cells is evaluated. Expand
Cancer as a defective network for NF-κB
TLDR
The role of the transcription factor NF-κB, which interacts with chromatin modulators by cell-specific dynamics, controls cell interactions during inflammation, and its abnormal feedback regulation is implicated in cancer, is addressed. Expand
Progression of Mouse Skin Carcinogenesis Is Associated with Increased Erα Levels and Is Repressed by a Dominant Negative Form of Erα
TLDR
The findings suggest an implication of ERα in the aggressiveness of spindle mouse skin cancer cells, possibly through regulation of genes affecting cell shape and adhesion, and they also provide hints for the effective targeting ofSpindle cancer cells by dnERα. Expand
Oligonol, a Low Molecular Weight Polyphenol, Enhances Apoptotic Cell Death in Ovarian Cancer Cells via Suppressing NF-κB Activation
TLDR
Oligonol treatment significantly enhances apoptotic cell death in SKOV-3 cells, with the suppression of NF-κB activation, which plays an essential role in this anticancer effect. Expand

Epidermal Growth Factor Directs Sex-specific Steroid Signaling through Src Activation*
TLDR
It is shown that epidermal growth factor (EGF) directs sex-specific steroid signaling through SRC activation, and it is revealed that estrogen (E2)-induced Src activation takes place in, not only plasma, but also endomembranes. Expand
Exploring the role of sex steroids through studies of receptor deficient mice
TLDR
This review attempts to describe and compare the various phenotypes that result in each of these lines of mice, with emphasis on the development and function of the reproductive systems as well as reproductive behavior. Expand
Kinase-mediated transcription, activators of nongenotropic estrogen-like signaling (ANGELS), and osteoporosis: a different perspective on the HRT dilemma.
TLDR
Evidence that nongenotropic actions of sex steroid action involving the rapid activation of mitogen-activated protein kinases and/or phosphatidyl inositol 3 kinase can be functionally dissociated from classic transcriptional activation with synthetic ligands is highlighted and discussed. Expand
Inhibition of proliferation and estrogen receptor signaling by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma ligands in uterine leiomyoma.
TLDR
Results suggest that in uterine leiomyomas PPARgamma activation is growth inhibitory and that this inhibition is mediated at least in part by negative cross-talk between ER and PPAR signaling pathways. Expand
Ligand-independent activation of steroid hormone receptors
TLDR
Whether a steroid receptor responds to a signal by inducing transcription of a target gene in the absence of hormone depends upon the cell type, promoter, and activator, but there is good evidence that altered receptor phosphorylation plays a role in ligand-independent activation. Expand

TLDR
These pleiotropic actions of sex steroids on virtually all aspects of bone metabolism belie the importance of the skeleton not only in providing structural support for the body and in locomotion, but also as a dynamic tissue responsive to the reproductive needs of the organism for calcium. Expand
Changes in Gene Expression during Wolffian Duct Development

Novel cohorts of signals that may contribute to androgen-dependent WD development are suggested and hypotheses that can be tested by future studies are provided. Expand
Mechanism of estrogen-induced apoptosis in breast cancer cells: Role of the NF-κB signaling pathway
TLDR
It is suggested that long-term growth of MCF-7 breast cancer cells in steroid-free medium is accompanied with the increase in the basal ER-dependent transcriptional activity as well as the maintenance of the negative regulatory loop ER-NF-κB. Expand

TLDR
A central core of networked genes may be found under GC control in many types of malignant, GC-sensitive cells and the partial core list identified should be tested in clinical cell samples from hematologic malignancies. Expand
