Stelvio for Life

On Saturday the 2nd of September, the 6th edition of Stelvio for Life took place. More than 300 participants ran, cycled or walked the custom trail which was adjusted due to the heavy snowfall and cold. For safety, it was decided to reach a turning point after 13 km at 2147 meters. After that, participants had to descend as opposed to the original edition finishing after 21.1 km at 2,758 meters. The distance was extended to 26 km and both the start and finish were on the village square in Bormio, where all our participants finished safely.

The participants collected almost € 600,000 for personalized cancer research. We would like to especially thank our Bio-Connect participants and of course our sponsors!

Dual Role of TGF-β in Cancer Promotion and Suppression

Transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta signaling can have either tumor-suppressing or tumor-promoting effects in a cell- and context-dependent manner. The canonical Smad pathway is responsible for most of the TGF-β biological responses leading to tumor suppression (growth arrest, apoptosis, and prevention of immortalization) and tumor promotion (EMT, migration, invasion, and metastasis).

Caspase Detection

A central component of the apoptotic process is a cascade of proteolytic enzymes called caspases. Caspases participate in a series of reactions that are triggered in response to pro-apoptotic signals and result in the cleavage of protein substrates, causing the disassembly of the cell. Caspases have been identified in organisms ranging from... Read more »»

Linking NAD+ Signaling & Cancer

Many and various NAD+-dependent signaling pathways regulate fundamental processes such as transcription, DNA repair, cell cycle progression, apoptosis, proliferation, survival and metabolism, which are linked to cancer development. NAD+-dependent signaling reactions involve the degradation of NAD, therefore permanent nucleotide resynthesis through different biosynthetic pathways is crucial for incessant cancer cell proliferation. Targeting the NAD metabolism, its synthesis and signaling pathways (PARPs, SIRTs, MARTs, CD38) show several effects on cancer cells and are therefore new and promising concepts for cancer treatment.

Excellent PTEN Antibody

Phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate 3-phosphatase and dual-specificity protein phosphatase PTEN is best known as a negative regulator of PI3K/AKT signaling by dephosphorylating PIP3. However, its functional shadow is now known to extend beyond PI3K/AKT pathway inhibition to include PIP3-independent roles affecting cell migration and genomic integrity. In addition, loss of normal PTEN activity has repercussions not only for tumor cell proliferation but also for regulation of the tumor microenvironment. Thus, there are clearly new frontiers to be explored in the PTEN field.
