A promoter-associated RNA downregulates the oncogenic GLI1 transcription factor in rhabdomyosarcoma cells
PG Zaphiropoulos - RNA & DISEASE, 2014
Abstract Recent experimental evidence demonstrates a novel regulatory mechanism on the
expression of the GLI1 oncogene, a transcriptional effector of Hedgehog signaling. This is
mediated by a non-coding RNA, antisense to the GLI1 promoter, GLI1AS, which elicits ...
YAPping About Differentiation Therapy in Muscle Cancer
MN Svalina, C Keller - Cancer Cell, 2014
Overcoming a presumed differentiation block in the childhood muscle cancer embryonal
rhabdomyosarcoma is often thought to hold promise as an approach to replace. ...
Outcome of chemotherapy for adult soft tissue sarcomas in Jos, north central Nigeria

... All the tumours were more than 5cm in size at presentation. Rhabdomyosarcoma was seen
in 17 patients (42.5%), fibrosarcoma in 14 (35%), liposarcoma and dermatofibrosarcoma
4 (10% ) each and one patient (2.5% ) had synovial sarcoma. ...

... skeletal muscle diseases. The development of the muscle derived rhabdomyosarcoma
(RMS) can be prevented by the re-expression of repressed miRNAs including
miR-206, miR-203 and miR-29, which act by reprogramming ...
Insulin-like growth factor binding protein 5 (IGFBP5) mediates methamphetamine-induced dopaminergic neuron apoptosis
D Qiao, J Xu, C Le, E Huang, C Liu, P Qiu, Z Lin… - Toxicology Letters, 2014
... Furthermore, the fact that over-expression of IGFBP5 inhibits IGF-I activation of IRS-1 (IR substrate-1), FKHRL-1 (forkhead in rhabdomyosarcoma-like 1) and protein kinase B, provides direct evidence for the ability of IGFBP5 to act as an apoptotic factor by inhibiting the action of ...

showing cytopathic effect in rhabdomyosarcoma cells and/or mouse cells were used
to test the efficiency of this method. To further characterize ...
