The activation of caspases is an important step not only in apoptosis induction, but in cellular processes such as proliferation, differentiation, and the immune response. Here, we show that the AP-1 family transcription factor JunB is cleaved and dephosphorylated in a caspase-dependent manner in...
Understanding the function of the JunB transcription factor in anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive, anaplastic large cell lymphomaDownload
Anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive, anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALK+ ALCL) is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma thought to arise from an activated T lymphocyte. This lymphoma is characterized by the presence of chromosomal translocations involving the ALK tyrosine kinase, which generate oncogenic...
Despite the research to date, the characteristics and impact of cognitive dysfunction (CD) in cancer patients following chemotherapy is still not well understood. It is estimated approximately 20% of patients will manifest measurable cognitive deficits on neuropsychological testing...
The aim of this work is to develop an effective non-viral carrier and to identify suitable gene targets that would induce apoptosis specifically in lymphoma cells upon down-regulation with short interfering RNA (siRNA). Lymphoma is common in children and young adults, and although survival rate...
