Characterisation of Ovarian Cancer Cell Line NIH-OVCAR3 and Implications of Genomic, Transcriptomic, Proteomic and Functional DNA Damage Response Biomarkers for Therapeutic Targeting

11 views | Nov 05 2020

Alice Bradbury et al. thought that NIH-OVCAR3 cells highlighted the complexity of HGSOCs and that genomic or functional characterization alone might not be enough to predict/explain chemotherapy response. [Read the Full Post]

Small molecule 2,3-DCPE induces S phase arrest by activating the ATM/ATR-Chk1-Cdc25A signaling pathway in DLD-1 colon cancer cells

18 views | Oct 29 2020

Bingjun Bai et al. suggested that 2,3-DCPE caused DNA damage in colon cancer cells and that 2,3-DCPE-induced S phase arrest was associated with the activation of the ATM/ATR-Chk1-Cdc25A pathway. [Read the Full Post]

EBV encoded miRNA BART8-3p promotes radioresistance in nasopharyngeal carcinoma by regulating ATM/ATR signaling pathway

9 views | Oct 28 2020

Xiaohan Zhou et al. indicated that EBV-miR-BART8-3p promoted radioresistance in NPC by modulating the activity of ATM/ATR signaling pathway. [Read the Full Post]

A phase I study of a dual PI3-kinase/mTOR inhibitor BEZ235 in adult patients with relapsed or refractory acute leukemia

17 views | Oct 22 2020

Fabian Lang et al.thought that combined inhibition of PI3K and mTOR inhibited a clinically meaningful driver pathway in a small subset of patients with ALL, with no benefit in patients with AML. [Read the Full Post]

HPV-induced Nurr1 promotes cancer aggressiveness, self-renewal, and radioresistance via ERK and AKT signaling in cervical cancer

17 views | Oct 20 2020

Peter Kok-Ting Wan et al. provided that BEZ, but not GSK, could abolish Nurr1-enhanced radioresistance, suggesting its potential value for radiosensitizing CSLCs in the clinical setting. [Read the Full Post]
