(Springer Nature, 2017)
      The PD-L1/PD-1 pathway is a critical component of the immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), but little is known about its regulation. We investigated the role of the MUC1 oncoprotein in ...
    • MUC1-Associated Proliferation Signature Predicts Outcomes in Lung Adenocarcinoma Patients 

      MacDermed, Dhara M; Khodarev, Nikolai N; Pitroda, Sean P; Edwards, Darrin C; Pelizzari, Charles A; Huang, Lei; Kufe, Donald William; Weichselbaum, Ralph R (BioMed Central, 2010)
      Background: MUC1 protein is highly expressed in lung cancer. The cytoplasmic domain of MUC1 (MUC1-CD) induces tumorigenesis and resistance to DNA-damaging agents. We characterized MUC1-CD-induced transcriptional changes ...
    • MUC1-C ACTIVATES THE TAK1 INFLAMMATORY PATHWAY IN COLON CANCER
