Biomolecules 2021 August 25 [Link] Danijela Štrbac, Vita Dolžan Abstract Metalloproteinases (MMPs) have an important role in tissue remodeling and have been shown to have an effect on tumor progression, invasion, metastasis formation, and apoptosis in several tumors, including mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare tumor arising from pleura and peritoneum and is frequently associated with…

The American Journal of Surgical Pathology 2021 August 19 [Link] David B Chapel, Michelle S Hirsch Abstract Primary peritoneal malignant mesothelioma (MM) can demonstrate morphologic overlap with low-grade and high-grade tubo-ovarian serous neoplasms; it is also biologically and prognostically distinct from benign mesothelial proliferations. Currently, there is no single biomarker that can definitively distinguish these…

International Journal of Molecular Sciences 2021 July 10 [Link] Li Yuan, Boshu Sun, Liangliang Xu, Limin Chen, Wenbin Ou Abstract SET domain bifurcated 1 (SETDB1) is a histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9) methyltransferase that exerts important effects on epigenetic gene regulation. SETDB1 complexes (SETDB1-KRAB-KAP1, SETDB1-DNMT3A, SETDB1-PML, SETDB1-ATF7IP-MBD1) play crucial roles in the processes of histone…
