Gene expression and pathway analysis of human hepatocellular carcinoma cells treated with cadmium.
New York City, United States. In Toxicol Appl Pharmacol, 24 Sep 2015
Genes downregulated following chronic exposure included the transcriptional regulator early growth response protein 1. Ingenuity Pathway Analysis revealed that the top networks altered by acute exposure were lipid metabolism, small molecule biosynthesis, cell morphology, organization, and development; while top networks altered by chronic exposure were organ morphology, cell cycle, cell signaling, and renal and urological diseases/cancer.

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom. In J Clin Oncol, 17 Sep 2015
RESULTS: We identified 15 significantly mutated genes: IRF4, KRAS, NRAS, MAX, HIST1H1E, RB1, EGR1, TP53, TRAF3, FAM46C, DIS3, BRAF, LTB, CYLD, and FGFR3.
Angiogenesis in gastric mucosa: an important component of gastric erosion and ulcer healing and its impairment in aging.
Long Beach, United States. In J Gastroenterol Hepatol, Dec 2014
Gastric mucosa of aging rats has increased susceptibility to injury by a variety of damaging agents such as ethanol, aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs because of structural and functional abnormalities including: reduced gastric mucosal blood flow, hypoxia, reduced expression of vascular endothelial growth factor and survivin, and increased expression of early growth response protein 1 (egr-1) and phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN).
