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 …

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 …
