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 ...
Nerve growth factor (NGF)-mediated regulation of p75(NTR) expression contributes to chemotherapeutic resistance in triple negative breast cancer cells
Triple negative breast cancer [TNBC] cells are reported to secrete the neurotrophin nerve growth factor [NGF] and express its receptors, p75 neurotrophin receptor [p75(NTR)] and TrkA, leading to NGF-activated pro-survival ...
The integrated stress response
(EMBO Press, 2016-09-14)
In response to diverse stress stimuli, eukaryotic cells activate a common adaptive pathway, termed the integrated stress response (ISR), to restore cellular homeostasis. The core event in this pathway is the phosphorylation ...
Generation of rationally-designed nerve growth factor (NGF) variants with receptor specificity
Nerve growth factor (NGF) is the prototypic member of the neurotrophin family and binds two receptors, TrkA and the 75 kDa neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), through which diverse and sometimes opposing effects are mediated. ...
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 ...
