In1-ghrelin splicing variant is overexpressed in pituitary adenomas and increases their aggressive features
Pituitary adenomas comprise a heterogeneous subset of pathologies causing serious comorbidities, which would benefit from identification of novel, common molecular/cellular biomarkers and therapeutic targets. The ghrelin ...
Galiellalactone induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis through the ATM/ATR pathway in prostate cancer cells
(Impact Journals, 2015)
Galiellalactone (GL) is a fungal metabolite that presents antitumor activities on prostate cancer in vitro and in vivo. In this study we show that GL induced cell cycle arrest in G2/M phase, caspase-dependent apoptosis and ...
Molecular Characterization of Growth Hormone-producing Tumors in the GC Rat Model of Acromegaly
(Nature Research, 2015)
Acromegaly is a disorder resulting from excessive production of growth hormone (GH) and consequent increase of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-I), most frequently caused by pituitary adenomas. Elevated GH and IGF-I levels ...
