    When exposed to diverse growth conditions in vitro, cells can respond by entering states of proliferation, quiescence, differentiation or apoptosis. While the choices among these states can be influenced by proto-oncogene expression, how these disparate outcomes are achieved remains poorly...

    The vav proto-oncogene encodes a protein with multiple modulae domains that enable it to function as a mediator, linking tyrosine signaling to downstream events in hematopoietic cells. Circumstantial evidence suggests that protein-protein interactions exerted by two of these domains, the Src...

    Mutations in Wnt pathway genes are rare in human breast cancer, yet activation of the pathway is evident from the misolocalization of β-catenin. We searched for relationships in the expression of Wnt pathway genes and found that both secreted frizzled related protein 1 (Sfrp1) and TCF-4...

    The purpose is to present the studies of RET gene expression and acetylcholinesterase activity in 23 patients operated for Hirschsprung's disease (HD). The patients underwent either transanal endorectal pull-through or Duhamell's procedure. Full-thickness intestinal samples from the three...
