Point mutations of the mTOR-RHEB pathway in renal cell carcinoma.
Birmingham, United States. In Oncotarget, Aug 2015
Interestingly, we found a prominent cluster of hyperactivating mutations in the FAT (FRAP-ATM-TTRAP) domain of mTOR in renal cell carcinoma that led to an increase in both mTORC1 and mTORC2 activities and led to an increased proliferation of cells.
Gene network profiling before and after transplantation in alcoholic cirrhosis liver transplant recipients.
Granada, Spain. In Transplant Proc, 2012
Selected genes up-regulated before transplantation were: TNFRSF9 (tumor necrosis factor [TNF] receptor superfamily, member 9); IL2RB (interleukin-2 receptor beta); BCL2L2 (BCL2-like 2); NOX5 (NADPH) oxidase, EF-hand calcium binding domain 5); PEX5 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 5); PPARG (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma); NIBP (IKK2 binding protein); NKIRAS2 (NFKappaBeta inhibitor interacting Ras-like 2); IL4 (interleukin-4); IL-4R (interleukin 4 receptor); ADH1A (alcohol dehydrogenase 1A, class 1); ALDH1L1 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family, member L1); MPO (myeloperoxidase); NPPA (natriuretic peptide precursor A); BCL2A1 (BCL2-related protein A1); GADD45A (growth arrest and DNA-damage-inducible alpha); TEGT (Bax inhibitor 1); PIK3CA (phosphoinositide-3-kinase, catalytic, alpha polypeptide); IFNGR2 (interferon gamma receptor 2); JAK2 (Janus Kinase 2); FAS (Fas, TNF receptor superfamily, member 6); TANK (TRAF family member-associated NFKB activator); TTRAP (TRAF and TNF receptor-associated protein); and ANXA5 (annexin A5).
