    The article on focuses the mechanisms related to the association between microribonucleic acids (microRNAs) and cell proliferation. It notes that a small number of microRNAs may serve as tumour cell markers and be regarded as key regulators in a neoplastic process. It adds that cancer...

    Aim: Increased proliferation of tumour cells has prognostic value in human invasive breast carcinomas (IBCs), and high histology grade and cyclin A expression, which may reflect high proliferation rate, are associated with poor prognosis. Expression of HsMCM2 is related to cell proliferation....

    Activation of autocrine and paracrine signalling by endothelin 1 (ET1) binding to its receptors elicits pleiotropic effects on tumour cells and on the host microenvironment. This activation modulates cell proliferation, apoptosis, migration, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, chemoresistance...

    Background: Apoptosis caused by inadequate or inappropriate cell-matrix interactions is defined as anoikis. Although transformed cells are known to be anoikis-resistant, the underlying mechanisms have not been well understood. We investigated the mechanisms of anoikis resistance of tumor cells....
