Stress management at the ER: regulators of ER stress-induced apoptosis.
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an elaborate cellular organelle essential for cell function and survival. Conditions that interfere with ER function lead to the accumulation and aggregation of unfolded proteins which are ...
Bcl-2 family on guard at the ER
(American Physiological Society, 2009)
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the main site for protein folding, lipid biosynthesis and calcium storage in the cell. Disturbances of these critical cellular functions lead to ER stress. The ER responds to disturbances ...
Rapid and efficient cancer cell killing mediated by high-affinity death receptor homotrimerizing TRAIL variants
(Macmillan Publishers Limited, 2010)
The tumour necrosis factor family member TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) selectively induces apoptosis in a variety of cancer cells through the activation of death receptors 4 (DR4) and 5 (DR5) and is considered ...
The Proteasome Inhibitor Bortezomib Sensitizes AML with Myelomonocytic Differentiation to TRAIL Mediated Apoptosis
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is an aggressive stem cell malignancy that is difficult to treat. There are limitations to the current treatment regimes especially after disease relapse, and therefore new therapeutic agents ...
RIP2 enhances cell survival by activation of NF-ĸB in triple negative breast cancer cells
Receptor-interacting protein 2 (RIP2) is an essential mediator of inflammation and innate immunity, but little is known about its role outside the immune system. Recently, RIP2 has been linked to chemoresistance of triple ...
Nerve growth factor-mediated inhibition of apoptosis post-caspase activation is due to removal of active caspase-3 in a lysosome-dependent manner
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-05-01)
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is well characterised as an important pro-survival factor in neuronal cells that can inhibit apoptotic cell death upstream of mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilisation. Here we addressed the ...
