Genetic variants in cell cycle control pathway confer susceptibility to aggressive prostate carcinoma.
Saint Louis, United States. In Prostate, Jan 2016
RESULTS: Eleven variants within 10 genes (CCNC, CCND3, CCNG1, CCNT2, CDK6, MDM2, SKP2, WEE1, YWHAB, YWHAH) in the European-American population and nine variants in 7 genes (CCNG1, CDK2, CDK5, MDM2, RB1, SMAD3, TERF2) in the African-American population were found to be associated with aggressive PCa using at least one model.
The SCF-type E3 Ubiquitin Ligases as Cancer Targets.
Hamamatsu, Japan. In Curr Cancer Drug Targets, Dec 2015
S-phase kinase-associated protein 2 (SKP2) (also known as FBXL1) is often overexpressed in human cancers, and functions as an oncogenic E3 ligase to degrade tumor suppressor gene products.
The role of the ubiquitin proteasome system in cerebellar development and medulloblastoma.
Winnipeg, Canada. In Mol Brain, 2014
We propose the hypothesis that proteasomal activity is essential to regulate the critical transition between proliferating granule cells and differentiated granule cells and that proteasome dysfunction may lead to MB. Proteasome dysfunction could also account for various mutations in MBs resulting from deficiencies in DNA checkpoint and repair mechanisms prior to development of MBs.Data showing a role for the ubiquitin ligases β-TrCP, FBW7, Huwe1, and SKP2 in MBs suggest the possibility of a classification of MBs based on the expression (over expression or under expression) of specific ubiquitin ligases which function as oncogenes, tumor suppressors or cell cycle regulators.
Bioluminescent imaging of Cdk2 inhibition in vivo.
Boston, United States. In Nat Med, 2004
The cyclin-dependent kinase (Cdk) inhibitor p27, for example, is polyubiquitylated in a cell cycle-dependent manner by a ubiquitin ligase complex containing the F-box protein Skp2.
