  1. 1. Novel Interactors of X-linked Inhibitor of Apoptosis Protein : Expression and Effects on Tumor Cell Death

    Author : Håkan Steen; Dan Lindholm; Bertrand Joseph; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Neurobiology; XIAP; tumor cell death; apoptosis; caspases; basic helix-loop-helix protein; Neurobiologi;

    Abstract : Programmed cell death, or apoptosis, has during the last decade received a lot of attention due to its involvement in a large number of pathological conditions. Since death is always irreversible, it is important for cells to fully control the initiation and execution of this process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Caspase activation in human neuroblastoma cells: mechanisms and spatiotemporal aspects

    Author : Elena V. Ivanova; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Boris Zhivotovsky; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; apoptosis; caspase; local caspase activation; neurodegeneration; tau-anchored FRET sensors; tAFS; cancer; neuroblastoma; TNF-related apoptosis inducing ligand; TRAIL; protein kinase C; PKC; X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein; XIAP; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Abstract : Apoptosis is one of the modes of programmed cell death, in which several members of the caspase family of proteases play the central role. However, activation of apoptotic caspases does not necessarily lead to cell death. READ MORE

  3. 3. Early oncogenic events and defective apoptosis in prostate cancer

    Author : Xiaolei Fang; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Prostate cancer; HGPIN; ezrin; pim-1; XAF1; apoptosis; DNA methylation; immunohistochemistry; FISH;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer is one of the most common malignancies in males in the Western world. Although the mechanisms are unclear, it is generally believed that the accumulation of genetic alterations leads to the tumor formation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Apoptosis-related mechanisms in the immature brain after hypoxia-ischemia

    Author : Xiaoyang Wang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : hypoxia-ischemia; neonatal; caspase; ERK; XIAP; EPO; asialoEPO; brain;

    Abstract : Aims: To characterize the activation of caspases-3 and extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) in the neonatal brain after hypoxia-ischemia (HI) injury and evaluate the neuroprotective effect of X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) protein, erythropoietin (EPO) and the non-erythropoietic derivative asialoEPO. Methods: Seven-day-old rats or 9-day-old mice were subjected to HI. READ MORE
