Systems Biology Approaches to Decipher the Underlying Molecular Mechanisms of Glioblastoma Multiform

ijms-22-13213-g002.png

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is one of the most malignant central nervous system tumors, showing a poor prognosis and low survival rate. Therefore, deciphering the underlying molecular mechanisms involved in the progression of the GBM and identifying the key driver genes responsible for the disease progression is crucial for discovering potential diagnostic markers and therapeutic targets...Read more


HOXA11 and CD10 aid in distinguishing endometriosis versus normal tissue and tumors

Endometriosis is a common gynecological disease that affects 4 to 10% of women worldwide and is characterized by the presence and the development of functional endometrial tissue outside of the uterine cavity...Read more


Advances and Utility of the Human Plasma Proteome

Human blood provides an easily obtainable, extensive, and sensitive diagnostic material for the assessment of wellness and disease in individuals and populations. The abundance of proteins and their primary isoforms, alternative splice isoforms, post-translational modifications (PTMs), and protein sequence variants provide a distinct snapshot into the current function of the circulatory system and all organs with which blood comes in contact...Read more


Next generation plasma proteome profiling of COVID-19 patients with mild to moderate symptons

Researchers within HPA have demonstrated the usefulness of "next generation plasma protein profiling" to identify molecular signatures of importance for disease progression and to allow monitoring of disease during recovery from COVID-19. The results will facilitate further studies to understand the molecular mechanism of the immune-related response of the SARS-CoV-2 virus...Read more


Discovery of Functional Alternatively Spliced PKM Transcripts in Human Cancers

Pyruvate kinase muscle type (PKM) is a key enzyme in glycolysis and is a mediator of the Warburg effect in tumors. The association of PKM with survival of cancer patients is controversial. This study investigated the associations of the alternatively spliced transcripts of PKM with cancer patients' survival outcomes and explained the conflicts in previous studies. The article has recently been published in the journal Cancers...Read more
