ERK/MAPK Signaling Is Essential for Intestinal Development through Wnt Pathway Modulation

Scientists found that deletion of Erk1/2 in intestinal epithelial cells at embryonic stages resulted in an unexpected increase in cell proliferation and migration, expansion of intestinal stem cells and formation of polyp-like structures, leading to postnatal death.

miR-135a Inhibits Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Progression by Suppressing RAB1B Expression and the RAS Pathway

Researchers showed that miR-135a was aberrantly downregulated in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells in comparison with normal bronchial epithelial cells, and the expression of miR-135a inhibited proliferation, invasion and metastasis of NSCLC cells in vitro.

Insulin Signaling and Glucose Metabolism in Different Hepatoma Cell Lines Deviate from Hepatocyte Physiology toward a Convergent Aberrant Phenotype

The authors investigated insulin signaling, gluconeogenic gene expression, glucose production, and fatty acid synthase abundance in primary hepatocytes and in HepG2, Hepa 1–6, and McARH7777 hepatoma cell lines.

Genome-Wide DNA Methylation Analysis of KRAS Mutant Cell Lines

Scientists analyzed the basal CpG methylation of 11 KRAS-mutant and dependent pancreatic cancer cell lines and observed strikingly similar methylation patterns. KRAS knockdown resulted in unique methylation changes with limited overlap between each cell line.
