Increased nucleotide polymorphic changes in the 5'-untranslated region of δ-catenin (CTNND2) gene in prostate cancer
(East Carolina University, 2009-01)
Cancer pathogenesis involves multiple genetic and epigenetic alterations, which result in oncogenic changes in gene expression. δ-Catenin (CTNND2) is overexpressed in cancer although the mechanisms of its upregulation are ...
Identification of E2F1 as a positive transcriptional regulator for delta-catenin
(East Carolina University, 2008-05-02)
Delta-Catenin is upregulated in human carcinomas. However, little is known about the potential transcriptional factors that regulate delta-catenin expression in cancer. Using a human delta-catenin reporter system, we have ...
delta-Catenin promotes prostate cancer cell growth and progression by altering cell cycle and survival gene profiles
(East Carolina University, 2009-03-10)
Background: delta-Catenin is a unique member of delta-catenin/armadillo domain superfamily proteins and its primary expression is restricted to the brain. However, delta-catenin is upregulated in human prostatic adenocarcinomas, ...
