Chunling Zhao, Jiyu Ju

Abstract

Arenicola cristata, a marine annelid, is a well-known and prized traditional Chinese medicine. However, the serine protease gene of A. cristata has not been cloned yet. In this study, a novel protease of A. cristata was cloned, sequenced, and expressed in Escherichia coli, and the funct...read more

Esophageal Carcinoma

Esophageal carcinoma has two main subtypes, esophageal squamous-cell carcinoma and esophageal adenocarcinoma. Several factors, both genetic and environmental, have been shown to increase risk of developing esophageal carcinoma. Here is the latest research.

Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma is often found in the upper and middle part of the esophagus and arises from the squamous epithelium. Discover the latest research on Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma here.

BCL-2 Family Proteins

BLC-2 family proteins are a group that share the same homologous BH domain. They play many different roles including pro-survival signals, mitochondria-mediated apoptosis and removal or damaged cells. They are often regulated by phosphorylation, affecting their catalytic activity. Here is the latest research on BCL-2 family proteins.

Cancer Metabolism

In order for cancer cells to maintain rapid, uncontrolled cell proliferation, they must acquire a source of energy. Cancer cells acquire metabolic energy from their surrounding environment and utilize the host cell nutrients to do so. Here is the latest research on cancer metabolism.

Apoptosis

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

Carcinoma, Squamous Cell

Basal cell carcinoma is a form of malignant skin cancer found on the head and neck regions and has low rates of metastasis. Discover the latest research on basal cell carcinoma here.
