Inhibition of the anti-apoptotic PI(3)K/Akt/Bad pathway by stress
In The Journal of Cell Biology, 1997
... For stable transfection, Rat-1/Wnt-1 cells were cotransfected with pcDNA3-flag-DN-Tcf-4, encoding the dominant-negative mutant (DN) of Tcf-4, or control empty vector and pBabe vector, containing a puromycin selectable marker, with Superfect (QIAGEN), according to the manufacturer's ...
Group 2 Innate Lymphoid Cells in Health and Disease.
New York City, United States. In Cold Spring Harb Perspect Biol, Feb 2015
ILC2s arise from common lymphoid progenitors in the bone marrow, are dependent on the transcription factors RORα, GATA3, and TCF-1, and produce the type 2 cytokines interleukin (IL)-4, IL-5, IL-9, and/or IL-13.
Integrative Genomic Signatures Of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Derived from Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease.
Spain. In Plos One, Dec 2014
Our findings show that: (I) HNF4 is a common potential transcription factor mediating the transcription of NAFLD progression genes (II) mice HCC derived from NAFLD co-cluster with a less aggressive human HCC subtype of differential prognosis and mixed etiology (III) the HCC survival signature is able to correctly classify 95% of the samples and gives Fgf20 and Tgfb1i1 as the most robust genes for prediction (IV) the expression values of genes composing the signature in an independent human HCC dataset revealed different HCC subtypes showing differences in survival time by a Logrank test.
Targeting the β-catenin nuclear transport pathway in cancer.
Sydney, Australia. In Semin Cancer Biol, Aug 2014
In response to a wnt stimulus or specific gene mutations, β-catenin is stabilized and translocates to the nucleus where it binds TCF/LEF-1 transcription factors to transactivate genes that drive tumor formation.
Insulin gene mutations and diabetes.
Wakayama, Japan. In J Diabetes Investig, 2011
Maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY) or an autoantibody-negative type 1-like phenotype has also been reported.
