    IRE1α links Nck1 deficiency to attenuated PTP1B expression in HepG2 cells.
    Cell Signal 2017 Apr 25. Epub 2017 Apr 25.
    Department of Medicine, McGill University, Montreal, QC H4A 3J1, Canada; The Research Institute of McGill University Health Centre, Montreal, QC H4A 3J1, Canada. Electronic address:
    PTP1B, a prototype of the non-receptor subfamily of the protein tyrosine phosphatase superfamily, plays a key role in regulating intracellular signaling from various receptor and non-receptor protein tyrosine kinases. Previously, we reported that silencing Nck1 in human hepatocellular carcinoma HepG2 cells enhances basal and growth factor-induced activation of the PI3K-Akt pathway through attenuating PTP1B expression. However, the underlying mechanism by which Nck1 depletion represses PTP1B expression remains unclear. Read More

    Dermoscopy-pathology relationship in seborrheic keratosis.
    J Dermatol 2017 May;44(5):518-524
    Department of Dermatology, Shinshu University School of Medicine, Matsumoto, Japan.
    Making a definitive diagnosis of seborrheic keratosis (SK) can be challenging for the naked eye due to its wide variation in clinical features. Fortunately, however, most cases of SK exhibit the typical dermoscopic findings of fissures and ridges, hairpin vessels with white halo, comedo-like openings, and milia-like cysts, all of which are helpful to distinguish SK from melanoma, melanocytic nevus, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and other skin tumors. Histopathologically, these dermoscopic characteristics correspond to papillomatous surface of the epidermis, enlarged capillaries of the dermal papillae, pseudohorn cysts in the epidermis opened to the surface of the lesion and intraepidermal cysts, respectively.

    Oncotarget 2017 Apr 16:27454-27470. Epub 2017 Apr 16.
    Inserm, UMR-S 935, SFR André Lwoff, Villejuif, France.
    Colorectal carcinoma cells Isreco1 display an ability to migrate controlled by a complex set of signals issued from the membrane. By comparing cells infected by mycoplasmas and mycoplasmas free cells, we have established that basal 2D migration is dependent on a double signal mediated by the collagen receptors integrins alpha1/2 and the Toll-Like receptor TLR2. The signal issued from mycoplasmas can be replaced by a TLR2 ligand and the functional effect is neutralized by silencing of MyD88. Read More

    Caspase-12 (Casp12), an inflammatory caspase, functions as a dominant-negative regulator of inflammatory responses and is associated with the signaling of apoptosis. However, the physiological function of Casp12 presented in cancer cells is still unclear. This study demonstrated that overexpression of Casp12 mediated IκBα degradation and significantly increased NF-κB activity. Read More

    Background: The association between history of keratinocyte carcinoma (KC, also known as nonmelanoma skin cancer) and risk of developing invasive melanoma has not been assessed comprehensively using prospective data.

    Methods: We followed 91 846 women in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS; 1984-2010), 114 918 women in the NHSII (1989-2011), and 48 946 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2010) for diagnoses of KC and melanoma biennially. Cox proportional hazards models were used to compute hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) of melanoma associated with history of KC, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
