  1. 1. p63 and potential p63 targets in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck

    Author : Linda Boldrup; Karin Nylander; Wendy Weinberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SCCHN; p63; Cox-2; EGFR; β-catenin; PP2A; p53; Tumour biology; Tumörbiologi;

    Abstract : Squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN), the 6th most common cancer worldwide, has a low 5-year survival. Disease as well as treatment often causes patients severe functional and aesthetic problems. READ MORE

  2. 2. p63 and epithelial homeostasis : studies of p63 under normal, hyper-proliferative and malignant conditions

    Author : Xiaolian Gu; Karin Nylander; Antonio Costanzo; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; p63; psoriasis; SCCHN; epithelium; homeostasis; Pathology; Patologi; patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : Background: The p63 gene is a member of the p53 transcription factor family and can produce six different proteins using two promoters and differential splicing. Expression of p63 is required for proper formation of epithelial tissues. READ MORE

  3. 3. p63 – from expression to function : studies of normal oral mucosa and squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck

    Author : Niklas Thurfjell; Karin Nylander; Phillip Coates; Göran Roos; Luisa Guerrini; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; p63; SCCHN; p53; BRCA1; Pathology; Patologi;

    Abstract : The human p63 gene discovered in 1997 encodes a series of protein isoforms that differ in their N- and/or C-terminal sequences. These isoforms have widely differing properties in promoting or repressing p53-related functions such as growth arrest and apoptosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wilms' tumor gene 1 in different types of cancer

    Author : Xingru Li; Aihong Li; Karin Nylander; Eva Lundin; Xiaolian Gu; David M. Loeb; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; WT1; AML; MRD; ccRCC; SNPs; DNA methylation; SCCHN; p63; Clinical Chemistry; klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : The Wilms’ tumor gene 1 (WT1) was first reported as a tumor suppressor gene in Wilms’ tumor. However, later studies have shown the oncogenic properties of WT1 in a variety of tumors. It was recently proposed that WT1 was a chameleon gene, due to its dual functions in tumorigenesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. The use of formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue and global gene expression profiling for increased understanding of squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue

    Author : Rentoft Matilda; Karin Nylander; Michael Prystowsky; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SCCHN; tongue; microarray; DASL; FFPE; archival; mRNA; miRNA; patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : Head and neck cancer is the 6th most common malignancy worldwide, with tumours of the tongue being one of the most prevalent sites. Despite advances in surgery and radiotherapy, the five-year survival has not changed during the last decades and remains at approximately 50%. READ MORE
