    • Analysis of the mutation in cutaneous melanoma patients with occupational sun exposure 

      Candido, Saverio; Rapisarda, Venerando; Marconi, Andrea; Malaponte, Graziella; Bevelacqua, Valentina; Gangemi, Pietro; Scalisi, Aurora; McCubrey, James A.; Maestro, Roberta; Spandidos, Demetrios A.; Fenga, Concettina; Libra, Massimo (2014-03)
      Sun-exposure is one of the risk factors associated with the development of a cutaneous neoplasm. In melanoma, the Ras-Raf-MEK-ERK (MAPK) signaling pathway is constitutively activated through multiple mechanisms, including ...
    • GSK-3 as potential target for therapeutic intervention in cancer 

      McCubrey, James A.; Steelman, Linda S.; Bertrand, Fred E.; Davis, Nicole Marie; Sokolosky, Melissa; Abrams, Stephen L.; Montalto, Giuseppe; D'Assoro, Antonino B.; Libra, Massimo; Nicoletti, Ferdinando; Maestro, Roberta; Basecke, Jorg; Rakus, Dariusz; Gizak, Agnieszka; Demidenko, Zoya N.; Cocco, Lucio; Martelli, Alberto M.; Cervello, Melchiorre (2014-05)
      The serine/threonine kinase glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) was initially identified and studied in the regulation of glycogen synthesis. GSK-3 functions in a wide range of cellular processes. Aberrant activity of GSK-3 ...
    • Multifaceted roles of GSK-3 and Wnt/β-catenin in hematopoiesis and leukemogenesis: opportunities for therapeutic intervention 

      McCubrey, James A.; Steelman, L. S.; Bertrand, Fred E.; Davis, Nicole Marie; Abrams, Stephen L.; Montalto, Giuseppe; D'Assoro, Antonino B.; Libra, Massimo; Nicoletti, Ferdinando; Maestro, Roberta; Basecke, Jorg; Cocco, Lucio; Cervello, Melchiorre; Martelli, Alberto M. (2014-01)
      Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) is well documented to participate in a complex array of critical cellular processes. It was initially identified in rat skeletal muscle as a serine/threonine kinase that phosphorylated ...
    • Roles of neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) in human cancer 

      Candido, Saverio; Maestro, Roberta; Polesel, Jerry; Catania, Alessia; Maira, Francesca; Signorelli, Santo S.; McCubrey, James A.; Libra, Massimo (2014-03)
      Cancer remains one of the major cause of death in the Western world. Although, it has been demonstrated that new therapies can improve the outcome of cancer patients, still many patients relapse after treatment. Therefore, ...
