MiR-744 increases tumorigenicity of pancreatic cancer by activating Wnt/β-catenin pathway.
Wuhan, China. In Oncotarget, Dec 2015
In the current study, we demonstrated that upregulation of miR-744 in pancreatic cancer promoted Wnt/β-catenin signaling by directly targeting secreted frizzled-related protein 1 (SFRP1), glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK3β), and transducin-like enhancer of split 3 (TLE3), important negative modulators of Wnt/β-catenin signaling.
Genetic loci that regulate ectopic calcification in response to knee trauma in LG/J by SM/J advanced intercross mice.
Saint Louis, United States. In J Orthop Res, Oct 2015
Functional and bioinformatic analyses of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) identified functional classifications relevant to angiogenesis (Myo1e, Kif26b, Nprl3, Stab2, Fam105b), bone metabolism/calcification (Tle3, Tgfb2, Lipc, Nfe2l1, Ank, Fam105b), arthritis (Stab2, Tbx21, Map4k4, Hoxb9, Larp6, Col1a2, Adam10, Timp3, Nfe2l1, Trpm3), and ankylosing-spondylitis (Ank, Pon1, Il1r2, Tbkbp1) indicating that ectopic calcification involves multiple mechanisms.
DNA methylation changes in genes frequently mutated in sporadic colorectal cancer and in the DNA repair and Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway genes.
Örebro, Sweden. In Epigenomics, 2014
RESULTS: We found significantly aberrant methylation in 23 genes (NEIL1, NEIL3, DCLRE1C, NHEJ1, GTF2H5, CCNH, CTNNB1, DKK2, DKK3, FZD5 LRP5, TLE3, WNT2, WNT3A, WNT6, TCF7L1, CASP8, EDNRB1, GPC6, KIAA1804, MYO1B, SMAD2 and TTN).
Relevance of breast cancer antiestrogen resistance genes in human breast cancer progression and tamoxifen resistance.
Rotterdam, Netherlands. In J Clin Oncol, 2009
PATIENTS AND METHODS: mRNA levels of 10 BCAR genes (AKT1, AKT2, BCAR1, BCAR3, EGFR, ERBB2, GRB7, SRC, TLE3, and TRERF1) were measured in estrogen receptor-positive breast tumors using quantitative reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction.
