      Background: Homeobox B9 (HOXB9), a transcriptional factor, regulates developmental processes and tumor progression and has recently been recognized as one of important transcriptional factors related to angiogenesis. This ...
    • Brain Tumor Cells in Circulation Are Enriched for Mesenchymal Gene Expression 

      Sullivan, James P; Nahed, Brian Vala; Madden, M. W.; Oliveira, S. M.; Springer, S.; Bhere, Deepak; Chi, A. S.; Wakimoto, Hiroaki; Rothenberg, S. M.; Sequist, Lecia VanDam; Kapur, R.; Shah, Khalid A.; Iafrate, Anthony John; Curry, William Thomas; Loeffler, Jay Steven; Batchelor, Tracy Todd; Louis, David N.; Toner, Mehmet; Maheswaran, Shyamala; Haber, Daniel Arie (American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), 2014)
      Glioblastoma (GBM) is a highly aggressive brain cancer characterized by local invasion and angiogenic recruitment, yet metastatic dissemination is extremely rare. Here, we adapted a microfluidic device to deplete hematopoietic ...
    • Deformability of Tumor Cells versus Blood Cells 

      Shaw Bagnall, Josephine; Byun, Sangwon; Begum, Shahinoor; Miyamoto, David T.; Hecht, Vivian C.; Maheswaran, Shyamala; Stott, Shannon L.; Toner, Mehmet; Hynes, Richard O.; Manalis, Scott R. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
      The potential for circulating tumor cells (CTCs) to elucidate the process of cancer metastasis and inform clinical decision-making has made their isolation of great importance. However, CTCs are rare in the blood, and ...
    • Dynamic Chromatin Modification Sustains Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition following Inducible Expression of Snail-1 

      Javaid, Sarah; Zhang, Jianmin; Anderssen, Endre; Black, Josh C.; Wittner, Ben S.; Tajima, Ken; Ting, David T.; Smolen, Gromoslaw A.; Zubrowski, Matthew; Desai, Rushil; Maheswaran, Shyamala; Ramaswamy, Sridhar; Whetstine, Johnathan R.; Haber, Daniel A. (2014)
      SUMMARY Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is thought to contribute to cancer metastasis, but its underlying mechanisms are not well understood. To define early steps in this cellular transformation, we analyzed human ...
    • A microfluidic device for label-free, physical capture of circulating tumor cell-clusters 

      Sarioglu, A. Fatih; Aceto, Nicola; Kojic, Nikola; Donaldson, Maria C.; Zeinali, Mahnaz; Hamza, Bashar; Engstrom, Amanda; Zhu, Huili; Sundaresan, Tilak K.; Miyamoto, David T.; Luo, Xi; Bardia, Aditya; Wittner, Ben S.; Ramaswamy, Sridhar; Shioda, Toshi; Ting, David T.; Stott, Shannon L.; Kapur, Ravi; Maheswaran, Shyamala; Haber, Daniel A.; Toner, Mehmet (2015)
      Cancer cells metastasize through the bloodstream either as single migratory circulating tumor cells (CTCs) or as multicellular groupings (CTC-clusters). Existing technologies for CTC enrichment are designed primarily to ...
    • RNA Sequencing of Pancreatic Circulating Tumour Cells Implicates WNT Signaling in Metastasis 

      Yu, Min; Ting, David Tsai; Stott, Shannon; Wittner, Ben; Ozsolak, Fatih; Paul, Suchismita; Ciciliano, Jordan C.; Smas, Malgorzata E.; Winokur, Daniel; Gilman, Anna J.; Ulman, Matthew J.; Xega, Kristina; Contino, Gianmarco; Alagesan, Brinda; Brannigan, Brian W.; Milos, Patrice M.; Ryan, David P.; Sequist, Lecia VanDam; Bardeesy, Nabeel; Ramaswamy, Sridhar; Toner, Mehmet; Maheswaran, Shyamala; Haber, Daniel Arie (2012)
      Circulating tumour cells (CTCs) shed into blood from primary cancers include putative precursors that initiate distal metastases. While these cells are extraordinarily rare, they may identify cellular pathways contributing ...
    • The Role of Physical Stabilization in Whole Blood Preservation 

      Wong, Keith H. K.; Sandlin, Rebecca D.; Carey, Thomas R.; Miller, Kathleen L.; Shank, Aaron T.; Oklu, Rahmi; Maheswaran, Shyamala; Haber, Daniel A.; Irimia, Daniel; Stott, Shannon L.; Toner, Mehmet (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
      The rapid degradation of blood ex vivo imposes logistical limitations on the utilization of blood-borne cells in medical diagnostics and scientific investigations. A fundamental but overlooked aspect in the storage of this ...
    • SETD1A modulates cell cycle progression through a miRNA network that regulates p53 target genes 

      Tajima, Ken; Yae, Toshifumi; Javaid, Sarah; Tam, Oliver; Comaills, Valentine; Morris, Robert; Wittner, Ben S.; Liu, Mingzhu; Engstrom, Amanda; Takahashi, Fumiyuki; Black, Joshua C.; Ramaswamy, Sridhar; Shioda, Toshihiro; Hammell, Molly; Haber, Daniel A.; Whetstine, Johnathan R.; Maheswaran, Shyamala (Nature Pub. Group, 2015)
      Expression of the p53-inducible antiproliferative gene BTG2 is suppressed in many cancers in the absence of inactivating gene mutations, suggesting alternative mechanisms of silencing. Using a shRNA screen targeting 43 ...
    • Single-Cell RNA Sequencing Identifies Extracellular Matrix Gene Expression by Pancreatic Circulating Tumor Cells
