ICG-001 suppresses growth of gastric cancer cells and reduces chemoresistance of cancer stem cell-like population

0 views | Nov 17 2019

Liu Y et al. suggested that ICG-001 suppresses GC cell line growth, metastasis and reduces its stem cell-like properties and chemoresistance, indicating that ICG-001 is a potentially useful small molecule therapeutic for GC. [Read the Full Post]

Treatment with XAV-939 prevents in vitro calcification of human valvular interstitial cells

19 views | Nov 10 2019

Dittfeld C et al. indicated that XAV-939 was therefore able to prevent calcification of human VIC cultures, and XAV-939 treatment was accompanied by upregulation of active non-phospho-β-catenin. Although XAV-939 does not downregulate active β-catenin, treatment with XAV-939 results in Sox9 upregulation that may prevent the calcification process. [Read the Full Post]

The novel inhibitor PRI-724 for Wnt/β-catenin/CBP signaling ameliorates bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in mice

44 views | Nov 10 2019

Okazaki H et al. suggested that the β-catenin/CBP inhibitor PRI-724 is a potent antifibrotic agent that acts by modulating the activity of macrophages in the lungs. [Read the Full Post]

Nuclear localization of β-catenin and expression of target genes are associated with increased Wnt secretion in oral dysplasia

67 views | Oct 27 2019

Reyes M et al. indicated that secretion of Wnt ligands is critical for β-catenin nuclear localization and expression of target genes in oral dysplasia. [Read the Full Post]

Influence of Wilms' tumor suppressor gene WT1 on bovine Sertoli cells polarity and tight junctions via non-canonical WNT signaling pathway

55 views | Oct 01 2019

Wang X et al. indicated that WT1 mediates the regulation of several proteins involved in bovine SCs polarity maintenance and intercellular tight junctions (TJ) by non-canonical WNT signaling pathway. [Read the Full Post]

The Wnt inhibitor LGK-974 enhances radiosensitivity of HepG2 cells by modulating Nrf2 signaling

67 views | Aug 11 2019

Tian D et al. found that HepG2 cells became more sensitive to radiation with increasing LGK-974 concentrations. Upon 2 Gy or 4 Gy irradiation, the cells treated with LGK-974 more frequently underwent apoptosis and grew less rapidly. PCR and western blot results showed that inhibiting the secretion of Wnt3A blocked the Wnt signaling pathway and prevented Nrf2 signaling. Notably, the Wnt inhibitor may serve as a radiosensitizing drug. [Read the Full Post]

Safety, Tolerability, and Preliminary Efficacy of the Anti-Fibrotic Small Molecule PRI-724, a CBP/β-Catenin Inhibitor, in Patients with Hepatitis C Virus-related Cirrhosis: A Single-Center, Open-Label, Dose Escalation Phase 1 Trial

69 views | Jun 19 2019

Kimura K et al. showed that administration of 10 or 40mg/m2/day intravenous PRI-724 over 12weeks was well-tolerated by patients with HCV cirrhosis; however, liver injury as a possible related serious adverse event was observed in the 160mg/m2/day cohort. [Read the Full Post]

IWR-1 Inhibits Collagen-Induced Platelet Activation and Protects against Thrombogenesis

197 views | Mar 12 2019

Wang W et al. demonstrated that IWR-1 could effectively block collagen-induced platelet activity in vitro and in vivo, and suggest its candidacy as a new antiplatelet agent. [Read the Full Post]

UBE2S mediates tumor progression via SOX6/β-Catenin signaling in endometrial cancer

463 views | Mar 03 2019

Lin M et al. suggested UBE2S may serve as a promising prognostic factor and function as an oncogene in EMC. The newly identified UBE2S/SOX6/β-Catenin axis represents a new potential therapeutic target for EMC intervention. [Read the Full Post]
