Jab1 has been reported to regulate various proteins in signal transduction pathways and be implicated in carcinogenesis or tumor progression. However, the precise role and molecular mechanism of Jab1 in gastric tumorigenesis have not yet been fully elucidated. Jab1 staining in gastric cancer tissues and paired non-cancerous tissues was measured using tissue microarray (TMA) technology. The impact of Jab1 on tumor growth in vivo was analyzed using xenotransplantation experiments in Balb/c mice. The expression of Jab1 and p14ARF in gastric cancer cells was analyzed by western blot and confocal immunofluorescence. CCK-8 and cell cycle experiment were used to evaluate the cell proliferation. Ubiquitination assay was performed to validate whether ubiquitination is involved in Jab1-mediated p14ARF degradation. The expression level of protein p14ARF was inversely correlated with the protein level of Jab1. Then, we investigated the mechanism that how Jab1 induced p14ARF depletion. Mechanistic studies showed that Jab1 induced ubiquitin-independent proteasomal p14ARF degradation in gastric cancer cells. Our data demonstrated that Jab1 protein was a vital upstream negative modulation factor of p14ARF, and Jab1 could promote cell prolifera...Continue Reading

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Apoptosis in Cancer

Apoptosis is an important mechanism in cancer. By evading apoptosis, tumors can continue to grow without regulation and metastasize systemically. Many therapies are evaluating the use of pro-apoptotic activation to eliminate cancer growth. Here is the latest research on apoptosis in cancer.
