    Many features of the cancer cell phenotype emerge as a result of cooperation between multiple oncogenic mutations. Here we show that activated RasV12 and loss of p53 function can cooperate to promote cell motility, a feature closely associated with cancer progression to malignancy. Our analysis...

    Background: Ras homolog gene family member A (RhoA) is involved in Wnt-5a-induced migration of gastric and breast cancer cells. We investigated the roles of RhoA and Wnt-5a in ovarian carcinoma. Methods: RhoA and Wnt-5a mRNA and protein expression in normal fallopian tube epithelium, benign...

    Background: The expression of RhoA, a member of the ras homologue family, is reported to be involved in tumorigenesis in some cancers; however, its prognostic value in gastric cancer is controversial. Methods: Between April 1988 and January 2005, a total of 206 gastric cancer patients receiving...

    Numerous cellular studies have indicated that RhoA signaling is required for oncogenic Ras-induced transformation, suggesting that RhoA is a useful target in Ras induced neoplasia. However, to date very limited data exist to genetically attribute RhoA function to Ras-mediated tumorigenesis in...

  • Up-Regulation of Small GTPases, RhoA and RhoC, Is Associated with Tumor Progression in Ovarian Carcinoma. Horiuchi, Akiko; Imai, Tsutomu; Wang, Cuiju; Ohira, Satoshi; Feng, Yuzhen; Nikaido, Toshio; Konishi, Ikuo // Laboratory Investigation (00236837);Jun2003, Vol. 83 Issue 6, p861 

    To clarify the role of small GTPases Rho in the biologic behavior of ovarian carcinoma, we first examined the mRNA expression of RhoA, RhoB, and RhoC in benign, borderline, and malignant ovarian tumors using RT-PCR and real-time RT-PCR. The expression and localization of RhoA protein were also...

    Ras homolog gene family, member A (RhoA) has been reported as essential to the invasion process and aggressiveness of numerous cancers. However, there are only sparse data on the expression and activity of RhoA in clinically localised prostate cancer. In numerous cancers, tumour cells at the...

  • Myo9b is a key player in SLIT/ROBO-mediated lung tumor suppression. Ruirui Kong; Fengshuang Yi; Pushuai Wen; Jianghong Liu; Xiaoping Chen; Jinqi Ren; Xiaofei Li; Yulong Shang; Yongzhan Nie; Kaichun Wu; Daiming Fan; Li Zhu; Wei Feng; Wu, Jane Y.; Kong, Ruirui; Yi, Fengshuang; Wen, Pushuai; Liu, Jianghong; Chen, Xiaoping; Ren, Jinqi // Journal of Clinical Investigation;12/1/2015, Vol. 125 Issue 12, p4407 

    Emerging evidence indicates that the neuronal guidance molecule SLIT plays a role in tumor suppression, as SLIT-encoding genes are inactivated in several types of cancer, including lung cancer; however, it is not clear how SLIT functions in lung cancer. Here, our data show that SLIT inhibits...

    Background: The recently identified RASSF1 locus is located within a 120-kilobase region of chromosome 3p21.3 that frequently undergoes allele loss in lung and breast cancers. We explored the hypothesis that RASSF1 encodes a tumor suppressor gene for lung and breast...

    Background Increased collagen deposition provides physical and biochemical signals to support tumor growth and invasion during breast cancer development. Therefore, inhibition of collagen synthesis and deposition has been considered a strategy to suppress breast cancer progression. Collagen...
