    Activated gelatinase A is reportedly associated with tumor spread. We identified novel matrix metalloproteinases that localize on the cell surface and mediate the activation of progelatinase A. Thus, these progelatinase A activators were named membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase-1 and...

    The role of B cells in cancer and the underlying mechanisms remain to be further explored. Here, we show that tumor-associated B cells with activated STAT3 contribute to tumor development by promoting tumor angiogenesis. B cells with or without Stat3 have opposite effects on tumor growth and...

    Background: Tiam1 has been identified as an oncogene and acts as an activator of GTPase Rac. Tiam1 was reported to be a promoter of cancer progression in various cancer types, while in lung adenocarcinoma, its mechanism of action is poorly understood. Materials and Methods: Immunohistochemistry...

    Angiogenesis is critical for tumor growth and metastasis, and several inhibitors of angiogenesis are currently in clinical use for the treatment of cancer. However, not all patients benefit from antiangiogenic therapy, and those tumors that initially respond to treatment ultimately become...

    Cancer progression from microscopic dormant tumors into disseminated disease involves tumor angiogenesis, and is commonly referred to as the 'angiogenic switch'. CD11b+Gr1+ immature myeloid cells (IMCs) were reported to promote angiogenesis and tumor progression. Here, we studied a model of...

    Background: Growth factors produced by tumor cells are essential for tumor expansion and may be useful in monitoring tumor progression or therapeutic efficacy if the factors are released into the circulation. In this study, we measured serum levels of pleiotrophin, a secreted...

    Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been found to be pervasively transcribed in the genome and are critical regulators of the epigenome. Increasing evidence suggests that lncRNAs are aberrantly expressed in several types of human cancer and that they are important in the initiation, development...

    Membrane-type matrix metalloproteinases (MT-MMP) activate the zymogen form of MMP-2/Gelatinase A on cell surfaces and are expressed in invasive tumors. We sought to identify and characterize MT-MMP in a nonmalignant cell type that undergoes a physiologic and reversible invasive phenotype during...
