p53 promotes revival stem cells in the regenerating intestine after severe radiation injury.

Journal Article Nat Commun · April 8, 2024 Ionizing radiation induces cell death in the gastrointestinal (GI) epithelium by activating p53. However, p53 also prevents animal lethality caused by radiation-induced acute GI syndrome. Through single-cell RNA-sequencing of the irradiated mouse small int ... Full text Link to item Cite

Histological assessment of intestinal injury by ionizing radiation.

Chapter · 2023 Given the potential risk of radiological terrorism and disasters, it is essential to develop plans to prepare for such events. In these hazardous scenarios, radiation-induced gastrointestinal (GI) syndrome is one of the many manifestations that may happen ... Full text Link to item Cite

NUAK family kinase 2 is a novel therapeutic target for prostate cancer.

Journal Article Mol Carcinog · March 2022 Current advancements in prostate cancer (PC) therapies have been successful in slowing PC progression and increasing life expectancy; however, there is still no curative treatment for advanced metastatic castration resistant PC (mCRPC). Most treatment opti ... Full text Link to item Cite

Non-canonical role of Hippo tumor suppressor serine/threonine kinase 3 STK3 in prostate cancer.

Journal Article Mol Ther · January 5, 2022 Serine/threonine kinase 3 (STK3) is an essential member of the highly conserved Hippo tumor suppressor pathway that regulates Yes-associated protein 1 (YAP1) and TAZ. STK3 and its paralog STK4 initiate a phosphorylation cascade that regulates YAP1/TAZ inhi ... Full text Link to item Cite

27-Hydroxycholesterol Impairs Plasma Membrane Lipid Raft Signaling as Evidenced by Inhibition of IL6-JAK-STAT3 Signaling in Prostate Cancer Cells.

Journal Article Mol Cancer Res · May 2020 We recently reported that restoring the CYP27A1-27hydroxycholesterol axis had antitumor properties. Thus, we sought to determine the mechanism by which 27HC exerts its anti-prostate cancer effects. As cholesterol is a major component of membrane microdomai ... Full text Link to item Cite
