The article discusses several studies related to molecular biology. It states that a research by Patla and colleagues showed the existence of hundreds of heterogeneous particles at the center of focal adhesions which allow adhesions' stimuli adaptation. It says that Chandler and associates have found that the excision of IS608 transposon can be observed if its top strand is in the lagging strand. It mentions that Dou and partners have shown the role of SUMO protein in DNA repair regulation.

    Background: Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major obstacle in cancer chemotherapy. The drug efflux by a transport protein is the main reason for MDR. In humans, MDR mainly occurs when the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) family of proteins is overexpressed simultaneously. P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is most...

    Herpesvirus-associated ubiquitin-specific protease (HAUSP) regulates the stability of p53 and the p53-binding protein MDM2, implicating HAUSP as a therapeutic target for tuning p53-mediated antitumor activity. Here we report the structural analysis of HAUSP with Kaposi's sarcoma-associated...

  • The function of the RNA-binding protein hnRNP in cancer metastasis. Na Han; Wentao Li; Mengxian Zhang // Journal of Cancer Research & Therapeutics;Nov2013 Supplement 3, Vol. 9 Issue S3, pS129 

    Heterogeneous ribonucleoproteins (hnRNPs) are involved in a variety of key cellular functions and are most likely involved in different steps of pre-mRNA processing. Over the past decades, the central roles of hnRNPs have been detected, which show that they are involved in RNA splicing, telomere...
