Low‐dose triptolide enhances antitumor effect of JQ1 on acute myeloid leukemia through inhibiting RNA polymerase II in vitro and in vivo

Abstract The bromodomain and extra‐terminal (BET) domain inhibitor JQ1 exerts potent anticancer activity in various cancer cells. However, the resistance to BET inhibitors in leukemia stem cells limits its implication in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). High concentration of triptolide (TPL) presents anticancer activities but with adverse effects. Here,...

TNF‐α‐dependent lung inflammation upregulates superoxide dismutase‐2 to promote tumor cell proliferation in lung adenocarcinoma

Abstract Manganese superoxide dismutase (SOD‐2), an important primary antioxidant enzyme located in mitochondria, plays a critical role in tumor progression. Reportedly, the proinflammatory cytokine, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)‐α, can increase SOD‐2 expression in a human lung adenocarcinoma cell line in vitro, indicating that TNF‐α‐mediated inflammation...

The effects of ephrinB2 signaling on proliferation and invasion in glioblastoma multiforme

Abstract The aggressive nature of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) may be attributed to the dysregulation of pathways driving both proliferation and invasion. EphrinB2, a membrane‐bound ligand for some of the Eph receptors, has emerged as a critical target regulating these pathways. In this study, we investigated the role of ephrinB2 in regulating proliferation...

Loss of prdm1a accelerates melanoma onset and progression

Abstract Melanoma is an aggressive, deadly skin cancer derived from melanocytes, a neural crest cell derivative. Melanoma cells mirror the developmental program of neural crest cells in that they exhibit the same gene expression patterns and utilize similar cellular mechanisms, including increased cell proliferation, epithelial‐mesenchymal transition,...

Fibroblast growth factor‐2, derived from cancer‐associated fibroblasts, stimulates growth and progression of human breast cancer cells via FGFR1 signaling

Abstract Cancer‐associated fibroblasts (CAFs) constitute a major compartment of the tumor microenvironment. In the present study, we investigated the role for CAFs in breast cancer progression and underlying molecular mechanisms. Human breast cancer MDA‐MB‐231 cells treated with the CAF‐conditioned media manifested a more proliferative phenotype, as...

Tocilizumab potentiates cisplatin cytotoxicity and targets cancer stem cells in triple‐negative breast cancer

Abstract Triple‐negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a very aggressive subtype with high recurrence rate and no molecular targets for therapies. This subtype is characterized by high expression/secretion of the proinvasive/metastatic interleukin‐6 (IL‐6) cytokine. In the present study, we have shown that tocilizumab inhibits the IL‐6/STAT3 signaling and...

Slow N‐acetylation as a possible contributor to bladder carcinogenesis

Abstract Bladder cancer (BCa) is an exophytic tumor that presents as either noninvasive confined to the mucosa (NMIBC) or invading the detrusor muscle (MIBC), and was recently further subgrouped into molecular subtypes. Arylamines, major BCa environmental and occupational risk factors, are mainly metabolized by the genetically polymorphic N‐acetyltransferases...

USP53 promotes apoptosis and inhibits glycolysis in lung adenocarcinoma through FKBP51‐AKT1 signaling

Abstract Despite an overall decline in the incidence of new cases, lung adenocarcinoma continues to be a leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Due to lack of gene expression signatures for risk and prognosis stratification of lung adenocarcinoma, identifying novel molecular biomarkers and therapeutic targets may potentially improve lung adenocarcinoma...
