R of proteins either indirectly or directly connected to MAPK/ERK signaling (Ras, ERBB2, Myc) [4, 31]. A limitation of this study was that the dataset did not include all clinical variables, such as complete TNM staging and chemotherapy treatment, and thus we could not evaluate all variables that might impact survival. While the HRs of known clinical (TNM system N and M stage) and pathological var

Activation of ERK with induction of apoptosis by various chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic agents [39-41]. In fact, oxidants have been shown to activate ERK by taking over the growth factor receptor signaling pathways [42-46]. Moreover, ERK may get activated in response to DNA damage and can phosphorylate p53 in vitro [23,24,47-49]. We found that exposure of Capan-2 or BxPC-3 cells with apoptos

The abundance of yolk proteins interferes with any proteomic application that intends to target the cells of the embryo proper.
