Clinical cancer research : an official journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, 24(10), 2395-2407 (2018-02-03)
Purpose: Myeloma is a plasma cell malignancy characterized by the overproduction of immunoglobulin, and is therefore susceptible to therapies targeting protein homeostasis. We hypothesized that heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) was an attractive therapeutic target for myeloma due to its...

Nature communications, 8(1), 82-82 (2017-07-21)
TDP-43 pathology marks a spectrum of multisystem proteinopathies including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, and sporadic inclusion body myositis. Surprisingly, it has been challenging to recapitulate this pathology, highlighting an incomplete understanding of TDP-43 regulatory mechanisms. Here we provide...

Journal of leukocyte biology, 95(6), 941-949 (2014-02-06)
Diabetes mellitus accelerates the development of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases. Monocyte adhesion is an early cellular event of atherogenesis. Elevated levels of glyLDL were common in diabetic patients. Our previous studies indicated that HSF1 and p22-phox (a subunit of the NOX...

Breast cancer research and treatment, 153(1), 57-66 (2015-08-01)
Heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) has long been recognized as the master transcription factor that regulates heat shock proteins (HSPs).  More recently HSF1 has been associated with a broader role in regulating response to a variety of cellular stresses beyond...
Gil-Im Mun et al.
Cell death & disease, 11(5), 395-395 (2020-05-28)
The acquisition of MDR1-mediated chemoresistance poses a major obstacle to the success of conventional chemotherapeutic agents. HSF1 is also involved in chemoresistance, and several studies have demonstrated the relationship between HSF1 and MDR1 but without any consistent results. Paclitaxel- and...
Ye-Ji Jeong et al.
PloS one, 10(6), e0128552-e0128552 (2015-06-02)
Radiation enteropathy is a common complication in cancer patients. The aim of this study was to investigate whether radiation-induced intestinal injury could be alleviated by coniferyl aldehyde (CA), an HSF1-inducing agent that increases cellular HSP70 expression. We systemically administered CA...
Jie Zhu et al.
Frontiers in pharmacology, 9, 1277-1277 (2018-11-21)
Background: Endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress) plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of liver fibrosis; thus, it can be a potential therapeutic target of fibrosis. However, the mechanism of ER stress regulation in fibrosis, particularly through sirtuin 1 (SIRT1)...
Antonio Cigliano et al.
Oncotarget, 8(33), 54149-54159 (2017-09-15)
Upregulation of the heat shock transcription factor 1 (HSF1) has been described as a frequent event in many cancer types, but its oncogenic role in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains poorly delineated. In the present study, we assessed the function(s) of...
Liqun Shang et al.
Life sciences, 241, 117120-117120 (2019-12-12)
The present study explored the function and regulatory mechanism of High mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) in asthma. OVA (ovalbumin)-induced asthmatic mice model and LPS-treated cellular model were established in this study. Airway inflammation was measured through detecting the expression...
Nuria Vilaboa et al.
Nucleic acids research, 45(10), 5797-5817 (2017-04-04)
Comparative modeling of the DNA-binding domain of human HSF1 facilitated the prediction of possible binding pockets for small molecules and definition of corresponding pharmacophores. In silico screening of a large library of lead-like compounds identified a set of compounds that...
Liang Chen et al.
Cell cycle (Georgetown, Tex.), 18(1), 60-68 (2018-12-20)
Cells mainly rely on stress proteins, such as heat-shock proteins (HSPs), to respond to various proteotoxic conditions. These proteins protect tumor cells and enhance their survive. However, the regulation of stress proteins involved in protein quality control (PQC) is still...
Seok Jun Kim et al.
Yonsei medical journal, 59(9), 1041-1048 (2018-10-18)
Heat shock factor 1 (HSF1) is a key regulator of the heat shock response and plays an important role in various cancers. However, the role of HSF1 in gastric cancer is still unknown. The present study evaluated the function of...
