    The DOT1L histone H3 lysine 79 (H3K79) methyltransferase plays an oncogenic role in MLL-rearranged leukemogenesis. Here, we demonstrate that, in contrast to MLL-rearranged leukemia, DOT1L plays a protective role in ultraviolet ...
  • Basal Suppression of the Sonic Hedgehog Pathway by the G-Protein-Coupled Receptor Gpr161 Restricts Medulloblastoma Pathogenesis 

    Shimada, Issei S.; Hwang, Sun-Hee; Somatilaka, Bandarigoda N.; Wang, Xin; Skowron, Patryk; Kim, Jiwoong; Kim, Min; Shelton, John M.; Rajaram, Veena; Xuan, Zhenyu; Taylor, Michael D.; Mukhopadhyay, Saikat (Cell Press, 2018-11-05)
    Sonic hedgehog (Shh) determines cerebellar granule cell (GC) progenitor proliferation and medulloblastoma pathogenesis. However, the pathways regulating GC progenitors during embryogenesis before Shh production by Purkinje ...

    Adenocarcinoma (ADC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) are the two predominant subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and are distinct in their histological, molecular and clinical presentation. However, metabolic ...
  • Prioritization of Cancer-Related Genomic Variants by SNP Association Network 

    Liu, Changning; Xuan, Zhenyu (Libertas Academica, 2015-04-01)
    We have developed a general framework to construct an association network of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (SNP association network, SAN) based on the functional interactions of genes located in the flanking regions ...
