Phosphatidylcholine-specific phospholipase C inhibition down- regulates CXCR4 expression and interferes with proliferation, invasion and glycolysis in glioma cells.
 

Author(s): Laura Mercurio, Serena Cecchetti, Alessandro Ricci, Aurora Pacella, Giovanni Cigliana, Giuseppina Bozzuto, Franca Podo, Egidio Iorio, Giulia Carpinelli

Journal:

 

The chemokine receptor CXCR4 plays a crucial role in tumors, including glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive glioma. Phosphatidylcholine-specific phospholipase C (PC-PLC), a catabolic enzyme of PC metabolism, is involved in several aspects of cancer biology and its inhibition ...

Association between common polymorphisms in ERCC gene and glioma risk: A meta-analysis of 15 studies.
 

Author(s): Tengda Qian, Bin Zhang, Chunsheng Qian, Yunwen He, Yihuan Li

Journal: Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 May;96(20):e6832.

 

A number of studies have investigated the roles of excision repair cross complementation group 1 (ERCC1), ERCC2, and ERCC5 genes polymorphisms in the development of glioma; however, the results were inconsistent. Here, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between ...
