Wnt/beta-catenin signaling inhibits death receptor-mediated apoptosis and promotes invasive growth of HNSCC.


The Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway plays a critical role in cell proliferation and oncogenesis. It has been found to be chronically activated in a variety of human cancers, including head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Previously, we have found that the activation of the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway inhibits mitochondria-mediated… (More)
