    • Alteration of AKT Activity Increases Chemotherapeutic Drug and Hormonal Resistance in Breast Cancer yet Confers an Achilles Heel by Sensitization to Targeted Therapy 

      McCubrey, James A.; Sokolosky, Melissa L.; Lehmann, Brian D.; Taylor, Jackson R.; Navolanic, Patrick M.; Chappell, William H.; Abrams, Stephen L.; Stadelman, Kristin M.; Wong, Ellis WT; Misaghian, Negin; Horn, Stefan; Basecke, Jorg; Libra, Massimo; Stivala, Franca; Ligresti, Giovanni; Tafuri, Agostino; Milella, Michele; Zarzycki, Marek; Dzugaj, Andrzej; Chiarini, Francesca; Evangelisti, Camilla; Martelli, Alberto M.; Terrian, David M.; Franklin, Richard A.; Steelman, Linda S. (East Carolina University, 2008)
      The PI3K/PTEN/Akt/mTOR pathway plays critical roles in the regulation of cell growth. The effects of this pathway on drug resistance and cellular senescence of breast cancer cells has been a focus of our laboratory. ...
    • p53 and NGAL: dual regulatory roles in advanced prostate cancer 

      Chappell, William H. (East Carolina University, 2011)
      The development of prostate cancer from small regions of hyperplasia to invasive tumors requires genetic and epigenetic alterations of critical cellular components to aid in the development of cells more adapted for aberrant ...
    • Roles of the RAF/MEK/ERK Pathway in Cell Growth, Malignant Transformation and Drug Resistance 

      McCubrey, James A.; Steelman, Linda S.; Chappell, William H.; Abrams, Stephen L.; Wong, Ellis W.T.; Chang, Fumin; Lehmann, Brian D.; Terrian, David M.; Milella, Michele; Tafuri, Agostino; Stivala, Franca; Libra, Massimo; Basecke, Jorg; Evangelisti, Camilla; Martelli, Alberto M.; Franklin, Richard A. (East Carolina University, 2007-08)
      Growth factors and mitogens use the Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK signaling cascade to transmit signals from their receptors to regulate gene expression and prevent apoptosis. Some components of these pathways are mutated or aberrantly ...
    • Targeting prostate cancer based on signal transduction and cell cycle pathways 

      Lee, John T.; Lehmann, Brian D.; Terrian, David M.; Chappell, William H.; Stivala, Franca; Libra, Massimo; Martelli, Alberto M.; Steelman, Linda S.; McCubrey, James A. (East Carolina University, 2008-06-15)
      Prostate cancer remains a leading cause of death in men despite increased capacity to diagnose at earlier stages. After prostate cancer has become hormone independent, which often occurs after hormonal ablation therapies, ...
    • Targeting the RAF/MEK/ERK, PI3K/AKT and P53 pathways in hematopoietic drug resistance 

      McCubrey, James A.; Steelman, Linda S.; Franklin, Richard A.; Abrams, Stephen L.; Chappell, William H.; Wong, Ellis W.T.; Lehmann, Brian D.; Terrian, David M.; Basecke, Jorg; Stivala, Franca; Libra, Massimo; Evangelisti, Camilla; Martelli, Alberto M. (East Carolina University, 2007)
