Expression pattern of the Hedgehog signaling pathway in pituitary adenomas.
Thessaloníki, Greece. In Neurosci Lett, Feb 2016
We used a customized RT(2) Profiler PCR Array, to investigate the expression of genes related to Notch and Hedgehog signaling pathways (PTCH1, PTCH2, GLI1, GLI3, NOTCH3, JAG1, HES1, and HIP).
Identification of melanoma biomarkers based on network modules by integrating the human signaling network with microarrays.
Shanghai, China. In J Cancer Res Ther, 2014
Finally, we acquired six significant molecular biomarkers, namely, module 10 (CALM3, Ca 2+ , PKC, PDGFRA, phospholipase-g, PIB5PA, and phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase), module 14 (SRC, Src homology 2 domain-containing [SHC], SAM68, GIT1, transcription factor-4, CBLB, GRB2, VAV2, LCK, YES, PTCH2, downstream of tyrosine kinase [DOK], and KIT), module 16 (ELK3, p85beta, SHC, ZFYVE9, TGFBR1, TGFBR2, CITED1, SH3KBP1, HCK, DOK, and KIT), module 45 (RB, CCND3, CCNA2, CDK4, and CDK6), module 75 (PCNA, CDK4, and CCND1), and module 114 (PSD93, NMDAR, and FYN).
Recurrent chromosomal aberrations in intravenous leiomyomatosis of the uterus: high-resolution array comparative genomic hybridization study.
New Haven, United States. In Hum Pathol, 2014
Genes mapping to the regions of loss include CHEK2, EWS, NF2, PDGFB, and MAP3K7IP1 on chromosome 22q, HEI10 on chromosome 14q, and succinate dehydrogenase subunit B, E2F2, ARID1A KPNA6, EIF3S2 , PTCH2, and PIK3R3 on chromosome 1p.
SHH, WNT, and NOTCH pathways in medulloblastoma: when cancer stem cells maintain self-renewal and differentiation properties.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Childs Nerv Syst, 2014
METHODS: We quantified, by qPCR in 40 MB tumor samples, the expression of genes in HH (PTCH1, PTCH2, and GLI1), WNT (APC, CTNNB1, WIF1, and DKK2), and NOTCH pathways (NOTCH2 and HES1), which have a crucial role in development, and genes as MYCC, MYCN, and TERT, correlating this findings to patient's clinicopathological characteristics.
Hedgehog target genes: mechanisms of carcinogenesis induced by aberrant hedgehog signaling activation.
Japan. In Curr Mol Med, 2009
GLI activators bind to GACCACCCA motif to regulate transcription of GLI1, PTCH1, PTCH2, HHIP1, MYCN, CCND1, CCND2, BCL2, CFLAR, FOXF1, FOXL1, PRDM1 (BLIMP1), JAG2, GREM1, and Follistatin.
Hedgehog signaling pathway and gastric cancer.
Japan. In Cancer Biol Ther, 2005
Human SHH, IHH, DHH (Hedgehog homologs), HHAT (Hedgehog acyltransferase), HHIP (Hedgehog-interacting protein), DISP1, DISP2, DISP3 (Dispatched homologs), PTCH1, PTCH2 (Patched homologs), SMO (Smoothened homolog), KIF27, KIF7 (Costal-2 homologs), STK36 (Fused homolog), SUFU (SuFu homolog), DZIP1 (Iguana homolog), GLI1, GLI2 and GLI3 (Cubitus interruptus homologs) are implicated in the Hedgehog signaling.
Loss of function effect of RET mutations causing Hirschsprung disease.
Quarto, Italy. In Nat Genet, 1995
We have introduced three Hirschsprung (HSCR) mutations localized in the tyrosine kinase domain of RET into the RET/PTC2 chimaeric oncogene which is capable of transforming NIH3T3 mouse fibroblasts and of differentiating pC12 rat pheochromocytoma cells.
