Characterization of the first microRNA in human CDH1 that affects cell cycle and apoptosis and indicates breast cancers progression.

Sedigheh Gharbi, Zahra Mohammadi, Maryam Saedi Dezaki, Sadat Dokanehiifard, Shahriar Dabiri, Eberhard Korsching,

The E-cadherin protein (Cadherin 1, gene: CDH1), a master regulator of the human epithelial homeostasis, contributes to the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) which confers cell migratory features to the cells. The EMT is central to many pathophysiological changes in cancer. Therefore, a better understanding of this regulatory scenario is beneficial for ... Read more >>

Werner Boecker, Laura van Horn, Göran Stenman, Christine Stürken, Udo Schumacher, Thomas Loening, Lukas Liesenfeld, Eberhard Korsching, Doreen Gläser, Katharina Tiemann, Igor Buchwalow,

Understanding the mechanisms regulating human mammary epithelium requires knowledge of the cellular constituents of this tissue. Different and partially contradictory definitions and concepts describing the cellular hierarchy of mammary epithelium have been proposed, including our studies of keratins K5 and/or K14 as markers of progenitor cells. Furthermore, we and others ... Read more >>

miR-21-5p, miR-141-3p, and miR-205-5p levels in urine-promising biomarkers for the identification of prostate and bladder cancer.

Nassim Ghorbanmehr, Sedigheh Gharbi, Eberhard Korsching, Mahmood Tavallaei, Behzad Einollahi, Seyed Javad Mowla,

<h4>Background</h4>Early detection of cancers improves patients' survival and decreases the treatment cost. Unfortunately, the current methods for diagnosis of bladder and prostate cancers, two most common urothelial malignancies, suffer from a low sensitivity and specificity. MicroRNAs, as a group of endogenously produced non-coding RNAs, regulate gene expression and their expression ... Read more >>

Multicolor immunofluorescence reveals that p63- and/or K5-positive progenitor cells contribute to normal breast epithelium and usual ductal hyperplasia but not to low-grade intraepithelial neoplasia of the breast.

Werner Boecker, Göran Stenman, Tina Schroeder, Udo Schumacher, Thomas Loening, Lisa Stahnke, Catharina Löhnert, Robert Michael Siering, Arthur Kuper, Vera Samoilova, Markus Tiemann, Eberhard Korsching, Igor Buchwalow,

We contend that knowledge about the cellular composition of normal breast epithelium is a prerequisite for understanding proliferative breast disease. Against this background, we used multicolor immunofluorescence to study normal breast epithelium and two types of intraepithelial proliferative breast lesion for expression of the p63, basal keratin K5, glandular keratin ...

Receptor tyrosine kinase gene expression profiles of Ewing sarcomas reveal ROR1 as a potential therapeutic target in metastatic disease.

Jenny Potratz, Amelie Tillmanns, Philipp Berning, Eberhard Korsching, Christiane Schaefer, Birgit Lechtape, Carolin Schleithoff, Rebekka Unland, Karl-Ludwig Schäfer, Carsten Müller-Tidow, Heribert Jürgens, Uta Dirksen,

Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) have provided molecular targets for the development of novel, prognosis-improving agents in many cancers; however, resistances to these therapies occur. On the cellular level, one resistance mechanism is attributed to functional RTK redundancies and compensatory cross-signaling, leading to perception of RTKs as signaling and target networks. ...

<h4>Purpose</h4>A low mutation rate seems to be a general feature of pediatric cancers, in particular in oncofusion gene-driven tumors. Genetically, Ewing sarcoma is defined by balanced chromosomal EWS/ETS translocations, which give rise to oncogenic chimeric proteins (EWS-ETS). Other contributing somatic mutations involved in disease development have only been observed at ... Read more >>
