Study of Cell Signalling pathway in human tumors. Identification of funnel factors.

We have characterized the levels of activation in Cell Signalling in a spectrum of solid tumors and correlated the levels of various factors, including mTOR and downstream proteins (p70S6K, S6, 4EBP1, eIF4E) with prognosis and grade of malignancy. Also, are being characterized, at the molecular level, the factors involved in controlling the translation cap dependent and independent in malignant tumors.

Study of gene expression of senescence in human tumors

The expression of mARN genes identified by Dr.R. Bernards has been studied in normal and tumor tissue of cancer patients. This study identifies for the first time, RSK4 and KIAA0828 genes as genes whose role may be relevant in cancer. The expression of these genes is being studied in protein by Western blot and immunohistochemistry. Also are characterizing the biochemical pathways where these genes may be involved.

Identification of molecular targets associated with tumor progression and therapy resistance in colorectal carcinoma.

Studying in colorectal cancer mechanisms of action of the central signal transduction pathways, identify potential molecular alterations that can be used as therapeutic targets and characterize the degree of genetic inestability.
