Significance of CD66c expression in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Tokyo, Japan. In Leuk Res, 22 Nov 2013
In addition to the confirmation of strong correlation with BCR-ABL positivity and hyperdiploid, we further observed that CD66c is frequently expressed in CRLF2-positive (11/15, p<0.01 against chimeric gene-negative) as well as hypodiploid cases (3/4), whereas it is never expressed in ETV6-RUNX1, MLL-AF4, MLL-AF9, MLL-ENL, and E2A-PBX1-positive cases.
MG132, a proteasome inhibitor, induces apoptosis in tumor cells.
Chengdu, China. In Asia Pac J Clin Oncol, Mar 2013
There are many cancer-related molecules in which the protein levels present in cells are regulated by a proteasomal pathway; for example, tumor inhibitors (P53, E2A, c-Myc, c-Jun, c-Fos), transcription factors (transcription factor nuclear factor-kappa B, IκBα, HIFI, YYI, ICER), cell cycle proteins (cyclin A and B, P27, P21, IAP1/3), MG132 induces cell apoptosis through formation of reactive oxygen species or the upregulation and downregulation of these factors, which is ultimately dependent upon the activation of the caspase family of cysteine proteases.
Expression of KIT in the ovary, and the role of somatic precursor cells.
Leipzig, Germany. In Prog Histochem Cytochem, 2011
These cultures demonstrate expression of pluripotency marker genes such as octamer binding transcription factor-3/4 and sex determining region Y-box 2. The KIT/CD14-double-immunopositive cells can be purified and enriched by KIT-immunopositive magnetic cell sorting.
