The tumor-suppressor protein p53, encoded by TP53, inhibits tumorigenesis by inducing cell-cycle arrest, senescence, and apoptosis. Several genetic polymorphisms exist in TP53, including a proline to arginine variant at amino acid 72 (P72 and R72, respectively); this polymorphism alters p53

MicroRNA-21 (miR-21) is upregulated and inversely associated with survival in many cancer types, including pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). We studied the predictive value of miR-21 levels for gemcitabine or 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) response in tumor cells (TCs) or cancer associated fibroblasts

We used a photoactive general anesthetic called meta-azi-propofol (AziPm) to test the selectivity and specificity of alkylphenol anesthetic binding in mammalian brain. Photolabeling of rat brain sections with [(3)H]AziPm revealed widespread but heterogeneous ligand distribution, with [(3)H]AziPm preferentially binding to
