    • Actin-myosin-based contraction is responsible for apoptotic nuclear disintegration. 

      Croft, DR; Coleman, ML; Li, S; Robertson, D; Sullivan, T; Stewart, CL; Olson, MF (2005-01-17)
      Membrane blebbing during the apoptotic execution phase results from caspase-mediated cleavage and activation of ROCK I. Here, we show that ROCK activity, myosin light chain (MLC) phosphorylation, MLC ATPase activity, and ...
    • Dickkopf-3 links HSF1 and YAP/TAZ signalling to control aggressive behaviours in cancer-associated fibroblasts. 

      Ferrari, N; Ranftl, R; Chicherova, I; Slaven, ND; Moeendarbary, E; Farrugia, AJ; Lam, M; Semiannikova, M; Westergaard, MCW; Tchou, J; Magnani, L; Calvo, F (2019-01-10)
      Aggressive behaviours of solid tumours are highly influenced by the tumour microenvironment. Multiple signalling pathways can affect the normal function of stromal fibroblasts in tumours, but how these events are coordinated ...
    • Familial gigantism caused by an NSD1 mutation. 

      van Haelst, MM; Hoogeboom, JJ; Baujat, G; Brüggenwirth, HT; Van de Laar, I; Coleman, K; Rahman, N; Niermeijer, MF; Drop, SL; Scambler, PJ (2005-11)
      A three-generation family with autosomal dominant segregation of a novel NSD1 mutation (6605G --> A, resulting in Cys2202Tyr) is reported. Haploinsufficiency of NSD1 has been identified as the major cause of Sotos syndrome. ...

      Recent studies have provided a detailed census of genes that are mutated in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Our next challenge is to understand how this genetic diversity defines the pathophysiology of AML and informs clinical ...
    • MK2 Phosphorylates RIPK1 to Prevent TNF-Induced Cell Death. 

      Jaco, I; Annibaldi, A; Lalaoui, N; Wilson, R; Tenev, T; Laurien, L; Kim, C; Jamal, K; Wicky John, S; Liccardi, G; Chau, D; Murphy, JM; Brumatti, G; Feltham, R; Pasparakis, M; Silke, J; Meier, P (2017-06-01)
      TNF is an inflammatory cytokine that upon binding to its receptor, TNFR1, can drive cytokine production, cell survival, or cell death. TNFR1 stimulation causes activation of NF-κB, p38α, and its downstream effector kinase ...
    • Multicentric visceral epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, with extremity dermal deposits, unusual late recurrence on the nasal bridge, and TFE3 gene rearrangement. 

      Thway, K; Mentzel, T; Perrett, CM; Calonje, E (2018-02)
      Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a malignant neoplasm with vascular differentiation that most frequently occurs within soft tissues, bone, lung, and liver. It is histologically typified by epithelioid or spindle ...
    • Mutations in Epigenetic Regulation Genes Are a Major Cause of Overgrowth with Intellectual Disability. 

      Tatton-Brown, K; Loveday, C; Yost, S; Clarke, M; Ramsay, E; Zachariou, A; Elliott, A; Wylie, H; Ardissone, A; Rittinger, O; Stewart, F; Temple, IK; Cole, T; Childhood Overgrowth Collaboration; Mahamdallie, S; Seal, S; Ruark, E; Rahman, N (2017-05-04)
      To explore the genetic architecture of human overgrowth syndromes and human growth control, we performed experimental and bioinformatic analyses of 710 individuals with overgrowth (height and/or head circumference ≥+2 SD) ...
    • The non-coding variant rs1800734 enhances DCLK3 expression through long-range interaction and promotes colorectal cancer progression. 

      Liu, NQ; Ter Huurne, M; Nguyen, LN; Peng, T; Wang, S-Y; Studd, JB; Joshi, O; Ongen, H; Bramsen, JB; Yan, J; Andersen, CL; Taipale, J; Dermitzakis, ET; Houlston, RS; Hubner, NC; Stunnenberg, HG (2017-02-14)
      Genome-wide association studies have identified a great number of non-coding risk variants for colorectal cancer (CRC). To date, the majority of these variants have not been functionally studied. Identification of ...
    • The NSD1 and EZH2 overgrowth genes, similarities and differences. 

      Tatton-Brown, K; Rahman, N (2013-05)
      NSD1 and EZH2 are SET domain-containing histone methyltransferases that play key roles in the regulation of transcription through histone modification and chromatin modeling: NSD1 preferentially methylates lysine residue ...
    • Oncogenic RAS Signaling Promotes Tumor Immunoresistance by Stabilizing PD-L1 mRNA. 

      Coelho, MA; de Carné Trécesson, S; Rana, S; Zecchin, D; Moore, C; Molina-Arcas, M; East, P; Spencer-Dene, B; Nye, E; Barnouin, K; Snijders, AP; Lai, WS; Blackshear, PJ; Downward, J (2017-12-19)
      The immunosuppressive protein PD-L1 is upregulated in many cancers and contributes to evasion of the host immune system. The relative importance of the tumor microenvironment and cancer cell-intrinsic signaling in the ...
    • RHO binding to FAM65A regulates Golgi reorientation during cell migration. 

      Mardakheh, FK; Self, A; Marshall, CJ (2016-12-15)
      Directional cell migration involves reorientation of the secretory machinery. However, the molecular mechanisms that control this reorientation are not well characterised. Here, we identify a new Rho effector protein, named ...
