Metallothionein 2A genetic polymorphisms and risk of ductal breast cancer
(Springer Milan, 2012)
Metallothioneins (MTs) are a family of metal binding proteins that play an important role in cellular processes such as proliferation and apoptosis. Metallothionein 2A is the most expressed MT isoform in the breast cells. ...
Gene and protein expression of glucose transporter 1 and glucose transporter 3 in human laryngeal cancer—the relationship with regulatory hypoxia-inducible factor-1α expression, tumor invasiveness, and patient prognosis
(Springer Netherlands, 2014-11-21)
Increased glucose uptake mediated by glucose transporters and reliance on glycolysis are common features of malignant cells. Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α supports the adaptation of hypoxic cells by inducing genes related ...
Topoisomerase IIβ Binding Protein 1 c.*229C>T (rs115160714) Gene Polymorphism and Endometrial Cancer Risk
(Springer Netherlands, 2013)
TopBP1 (topoisomerase IIβ binding protein 1) protein is involved in DNA replication, DNA damage checkpoint response and transcriptional regulation. In this study we investigated whether alterations in the TopBP1 gene can ...
O-GlcNAcylation and metabolic reprograming in cancer
Although cancer metabolism has received considerable attention over the past decade, our knowledge on its specifics is still fragmentary. Altered cellular metabolism is one of the most important hallmarks of cancer. Cancer ...
Gene and protein expression of O-GlcNAc-cycling enzymes in human laryngeal cancer
(Springer International Publishing, 2014)
Aberrant protein O-GlcNAcylation may contribute to the development and malignant behavior of many cancers. This modification is controlled by O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine transferase (OGT) and O-GlcNAcase (OGA). The aim ...
