The authors showed YWHAE-NUTM2 complexes with both BRAF/RAF1 and YAP/TAZ in high-grade endometrial stromal sarcoma (HG-ESS). These interactions were functionally relevant because YWHAE-NUTM2 knockdown in HG-ESS and other models inhibits RAF/MEK/MAPK phosphorylation, cyclin D1 expression, and cell proliferation.

Researchers show CREB phosphorylation was required for smooth muscle cell proliferation in response to platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF). This phenotypic change required CBP and was mediated by Cyclin D1 and p27kip as a result of changes in FoxO1 activity.

Both pharmacological focal adhesion kinase (FAK) and genetic FAK inhibition reduced S-phase kinase-associated protein 2 (Skp2) expression in Vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) upon injury, which significantly reduced intimal hyperplasia through elevated expression of p27 and p21.

Investigators showed that monocyte chemotactic protein induced protein 1 (MCPIP1) was downregulated in 80 TNBC tissues and five TNBC cell lines compared to adjacent paracancerous tissues and one human immortalized breast epithelial cell line, while its high expression levels were associated with increased overall survival in TNBC patients.

Gain- or loss-of-function assays demonstrated that miR-23b-5p induced G0/G1 cell cycle arrest and inhibited cell proliferation both in vitro and in vivo. qRT-PCR, western blot and luciferase assays verified that Mammalian transcription factor Forkhead Box M1 (FOXM1), upregulated in hepatocellular carcinoma specimens, was negatively correlated with miR-23b-5p expression and acted as a direct downstream target of miR-23b-5p.
