Cell death induced by endoplasmic reticulum stress.
l'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain. In Febs J, Dec 2015
Central to the unfolded protein response are the sensors PERK, IRE1 and ATF6, as well as other signaling nodes such as c-Jun N-terminal kinase 1 (JNK) and the downstream transcription factors XBP1, ATF4 and CHOP.
Endoplasmic reticulum quality control in cancer: Friend or foe.
Ithaca, United States. In Semin Cancer Biol, Aug 2015
Here we review recent advances in our understanding of the complex relationship between ER proteostasis and cancer pathology, with a focus on the two most conserved ER quality-control mechanisms--the IRE1α-XBP1 pathway of the UPR and SEL1L-HRD1 complex of the ERAD.
Molecular biology of the stress response in the early embryo and its stem cells.
Detroit, United States. In Adv Exp Med Biol, 2014
Some of the transcription factors (TFs) that are most important in the stress response are JunC, JunB, MAPKAPs, ATF4, XBP1, Oct1, Oct4, HIFs, Nrf2/KEAP, NFKB, MT1, Nfat5, HSF1/2 and potency-maintaining factors Id2, Cdx2, Eomes, Sox2, Nanog, Rex1, and Oct4.
