168 views | May 31 2019

Lian J et al. showed that NVP-AUY922 exhibits potent anti-PCC activities in vitro and in vivo and represents a promising therapeutic small molecule for treating malignant PCC. [Read the Full Post]

Quantitative phosphoproteomic analysis of acquired cancer drug resistance to pazopanib and dasatinib

177 views | May 26 2019

Vyse S et al. provided a useful resource detailing the candidate signalling determinants of acquired TKI resistance; and reveals a therapeutic approach of inhibiting HSP90 function as a means of salvage therapy to overcome pazopanib and dasatinib resistance. [Read the Full Post]

Drug sensitivity profiling identifies potential therapies for lymphoproliferative disorders with overactive JAK/STAT3 signaling

228 views | May 06 2019

Kuusanmäki H et al. showed alternative approaches to inhibit STAT3 activity and suggest Hsp90 as a therapeutic target in lymphoproliferative disorders with constitutively active STAT3. [Read the Full Post]

Tanespimycin as antitumor therapy

310 views | Feb 24 2019

Dimopoulos MA et al. showed that tanespimycin represents a promising new agent for the treatment of relapsed/refractory MM. Results of ongoing and future trials will determine the role of tanespimycin both in MM and other malignancies, including breast cancer. [Read the Full Post]

285 views | Feb 22 2019

Cao ZF et al. provided information important for understanding the molecular mechanisms of SDHA mutations in tumors. [Read the Full Post]

Inhibition of related JAK/STAT pathways with molecular targeted drugs shows strong synergy with ruxolitinib in chronic myeloproliferative neoplasm

390 views | Jan 08 2019

Barrio S et al. showed the combination of ruxolitinib with inhibitors that target these pathways has a strong synergistic effect, which may be due to decreased activation of the common effector, STAT5. [Read the Full Post]

Synergistic cytotoxicity of BIIB021 with triptolide through suppression of PI3K/Akt/mTOR and NF-κB signal pathways in thyroid carcinoma cells

1453 views | Oct 07 2018

Kim SH et al. suggested that BIIB021 has a cytotoxic activity accompanied by regulation of hsp90 client proteins in thyroid carcinoma cells. Moreover, the synergism between BIIB021 and triptolide in induction of cytotoxicity is associated with the inhibition of PI3K/Akt/mTOR and NF-κB signal pathways, the underexpression of survivin and the activation of DNA damage response in thyroid carcinoma cells.

The non-Geldanamycin Hsp90 inhibitors enhanced the antifungal activity of fluconazole

712 views | Jun 09 2018

Li L et al. showed that the activity of FLC against C. albicans biofilm formation in vitro is significantly enhanced when used in combination with HSP990. [Read the Full Post]

Lipopolysaccharide and heat stress impair the estradiol biosynthesis in granulosa cells via increase of HSP70 and inhibition of smad3 phosphorylation and nuclear translocation

805 views | May 01 2018

Li H et al. suggested that LPS and heat stress could impair estradiol biosynthesis in GCs via increased HSP70 and indirect inhibition of Smad3 phosphorylation and nuclear translocation. [Read the Full Post]

HSP90 activity is required for MLKL oligomerisation and membrane translocation and the induction of necroptotic cell death

1142 views | Nov 29 2017

Jacobsen AV et al. implicated HSP90 as a modulator of necroptosis at the level of MLKL, a function that complements HSP90's previously demonstrated modulation of the upstream necroptosis effector kinases, RIPK1 and RIPK3. [Read the Full Post]
