microRNAs – Biogenesis of microRNAs – microRNAs and Cancer

microRNAs

microRNAs microRNAs are small, single-stranded, non-coding RNAs which are 22-25 nucleotides long. They target mRNAs and either cleave or deadenylate the mRNAs or repress the translation. By these ways, they facilitate gene silencing and they are one of the main regulators of biological processes. They have role in every cellular activity and are very important … Read more

Fibroblasts | Activation of Fibroblasts

fibroblasts

Fibroblasts Definitition Fibroblasts are classic spindle-shaped cells and have multiple distinct functions. Principally, they build up and degrade the ECM by releasing collagens, MMPs, and other fibrous molecules. The interaction among fibroblasts is driven by integrin signaling and it affects the distribution of collagens (ref). Similarly, collagen fibers affect the allocation of fibroblasts in ECM. … Read more

Daily, over 30 million aspirin or non-aspirin NSAIDs are being consumed consciously or unconsciously. Currently, Aspirin™ has been a widely utilized pharmaceutical for 123 years and is appointed as the progenitor … Read more

PI3K – Protein tyrosine kinases

pi3k

Protein tyrosine kinases and serine-threonine kinases have crucial functions in cell signaling, differentiation, motility, and proliferation. PI3K is the most deregulated pathway in human cancers and an essential regulator of cellular proliferation. PI3K pathway is activated via oncogenic Ras/receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), PTEN loss, or activating mutations in PI3Ks. Moreover, PI3K is one of the … Read more
