Toward the development of transcriptional biodosimetry for the identification of irradiated individuals and assessment of absorbed radiation dose.
Warsaw, Poland. In Radiat Environ Biophys, Aug 2015
The mRNA level of 16 genes (ATF3, BAX, BBC3, BCL2, CDKN1A, DDB2, FDXR, GADD45A, GDF15, MDM2, PLK3, SERPINE1, SESN2, TNFRSF10B, TNFSF4, and VWCE) was assessed by reverse transcription quantitative PCR 6, 12, 24, and 48 h after exposure with ITFG1 and DPM1 used as a reference genes.
Multifaceted polo-like kinases: drug targets and antitargets for cancer therapy.
Frankfurt am Main, Germany. In Nat Rev Drug Discov, 2010
Although the roles of the closely related PLK2, PLK3 and PLK4 in cancer are less well understood, there is evidence showing that PLK2 and PLK3 act as tumour suppressors through their functions in the p53 signalling network, which guards the cell against various stress signals.
KSR and CNK: two scaffolds regulating RAS-mediated RAF activation.
Montréal, Canada. In Oncogene, 2007
Here, through the angle of studies conducted in Drosophila and C. elegans, we present two such proteins, the kinase suppressor of RAS (KSR) and connector enhancer of KSR (CNK) scaffolds, and highlight their implication in a novel mechanism regulating RAS-mediated RAF activation.
Polo-like kinases: a team in control of the division.
Utrecht, Netherlands. In Cell Cycle, 2006
Multiple Plks are present in mammalian cells (Plk1, Plk2/Snk, Plk3/Fnk/Prk, and Plk4/Sak) and Xenopus (Plx1-3), whereas in other species only one member has been identified, like Polo in Drosophila, Cdc5 in budding yeast and Plo1 in fission yeast.
