Global profiling of the signaling network of papillary thyroid carcinoma.
New York City, United States. In Life Sci, Feb 2016
KEY FINDINGS: 11 were differentially expressed between tumors and surrounding tissues, 8 of which were up-regulated (cytokeratin 18, Stat 1, HMG-1, p-p70 S6 kinase, Raf-B, glutamine synthetase, p-PKC δ, and HDAC1), while 3 of which were down-regulated (cytokeratin 5, BECN1, and p-ERK).
Taking aim at Alzheimer's disease through the mammalian target of rapamycin.
Newark, United States. In Ann Med, 2014
mTOR modulates multi-faceted signal transduction pathways that involve phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI 3-K), protein kinase B (Akt), hamartin (tuberous sclerosis 1)/ tuberin (tuberous sclerosis 2) (TSC1/TSC2) complex, proline-rich Akt substrate 40 kDa (PRAS40), and p70 ribosomal S6 kinase (p70S6K) and can interface with the neuroprotective pathways of growth factors, sirtuins, wingless, forkhead transcription factors, and glycogen synthase kinase-3β.
Driving neural regeneration through the mammalian target of rapamycin.
Newark, United States. In Neural Regen Res, 2014
mTOR through its relationship with phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI 3-K) and protein kinase B (Akt) and multiple downstream signaling pathways such as p70 ribosomal S6 kinase (p70S6K) and proline rich Akt substrate 40 kDa (PRAS40) promotes neuronal cell regeneration through stem cell renewal and oversees critical pathways such as apoptosis, autophagy, and necroptosis to foster protection against neurodegenerative disorders.
Maintenance of metabolic homeostasis by Sestrin2 and Sestrin3.
San Diego, United States. In Cell Metab, 2012
Chronic activation of mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) and p70 S6 kinase (S6K) in response to hypernutrition contributes to obesity-associated metabolic pathologies, including hepatosteatosis and insulin resistance.
Royalactin induces queen differentiation in honeybees.
Toyama, Japan. In Nature, 2011
Mechanistic studies revealed that royalactin activated p70 S6 kinase, which was responsible for the increase of body size, increased the activity of mitogen-activated protein kinase, which was involved in the decreased developmental time, and increased the titre of juvenile hormone, an essential hormone for ovary development.
