CellPress is showcasing a collection of CTD² Network’s articles which will help develop precision therapeutics in cancer. Register for the Cell-NCI Symposium: Beyond Cancer Genomics Toward Precision Oncology taking place from October 4-6, 2021.
Glioblastoma cells develop resistance to blockade the transcription factor STAT3. UCSF studies show that autocrine feedback loop among STAT3, EGFR and NF-KB mediates primary resistance and suggest combinatorial therapy to treat EGFR-amplified glioblastomas.
CTD2 scientists at Stanford University performed integrative analysis of early-stage breast cancer patient and cell line data to study the role of chromatin regulatory genes (CRG). These studies indicate, CRGs that promote DNA accessibility are associated with anthracycline sensitivity.
Neuroblastoma cells treated with RXDX-105, a small-molecule inhibitor of multiple kinases decreased cell viability and proliferation in vitro and in vivo.
Emory University CTD2 scientists showed that NSD3S plays a critical role in the regulation of MYC function through inhibition of FBXW7-mediated degradation of MYC. This interaction drives cancer cell survival and could be a potential therapeutic target in MYC-driven tumors.
Epigenomic analysis of methylation data using Onco-GPS computational approach identify subtypes of myelodysplastic syndromes. The subtypes had distinct patterns of genetic lesions, regulatory region methylation, and prognostic response.
Metabolic profiling of serum samples indicated an increase in kynurenine in melanoma and renal cell carcinoma patients treated with immune-checkpoint inhibitor, nivolumab. An increase in kynurenine, a product of tryptophan catabolism, correlates with worse overall survival.
Scientists at the Broad Institute CTD2 Center identified 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, a cytosolic enzyme as a link between carbohydrate metabolism and protein secretion.
A review article on understanding ovarian cancer at the protein-level using large-scale proteomic technologies and proteomic studies.
