p73-dependent induction of 14-3-3sigma increases the chemo-sensitivity of drug-resistant human breast cancers.

It has been well documented that tumor suppressor p53 is mutated in about 50% of all human tumors. p53 status might be one of the critical determinants for the chemo-sensitivity of human tumors. In the present study, we have found that p53 family member p73 as well as 14-3-3sigma is down-regulated in response to adriamycin (ADR) in ADR-resistant human… CONTINUE READING
