PIM-1: An Important Oncogene in Multiple Cancers

The PIM-1 (proto-oncogene serine/threonine-protein kinase) protein is an epithelial-derived, integral membrane serine protease. This protease forms a complex with the Kunitz-type serine protease inhibitor, HAI-1, and is activated by sphingosine 1-phosphate. PIM-1 cleaves and activates hepatocyte gro ...

APE1: A Multifunctional Protein

AP-endonuclease (APE1/Ref-1) is an essential multifunctional protein involved in the repair of oxidative DNA damage as well as in transcriptional regulation in tumor cells. It functions as an apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) endodeoxyribonuclease in the DNA base excision repair (BER) pathway of DNA lesion ...
