Tumor suppressor p16INK4a: Downregulation of galectin-3, an endogenous competitor of the pro-anoikis effector galectin-1, in a pancreatic carcinoma model
Hugo Sanchez-Ruderisch, Christian Fischer, Katharina M. Detjen, Martina Welzel, Anja Wimmel, Joachim C. Manning, Sabine André, Hans-Joachim Gabius
FEBS Journal 277, 3552–3563, September 2010
Priv.-Doz. Dr. Sabine André and Prof. Dr. H. C. Hans J. Gabius, based at the University of Munich, devote their research to glycosciences. The highlighted manuscript (together with its companion articles in FEBS Journal in 2007 and 2012) describe how a tumor suppressor reprograms glycosylation to trigger anoikis.
MicroRNAs and the regulation of fibrosis
Xiaoying Jiang, Eleni Tsitsiou, Sarah E. Herrick, Mark A. Lindsay
FEBS Journal 277, 2015–2021, May 2010
Dr Xiaoying Jiang is Associate Professor in the Department of Genetics and Molecular Biology, at the School of Medicine, Xi’an Jiaotong University, China. Her current research focuses on the identification and characterization of novel non-coding RNAs in cardiac fibrosis. Professor Lindsay, Chair/Professor of Molecular Pharmacology at the University of Bath, has been involved in developing RNA interference-based therapeutics and characterising the biological role of microRNAs and long non-coding RNAs in the immune response and respiratory disease.
Nuclear factor TDP-43 can affect selected microRNA levels

Richie Khanna, PhD, is a Principal Investigator in the Department of Pharmacology at Amicus Therapeutics. She received her PhD from the University of Delhi, India, and conducted post-doctoral research in the Universities of Tufts and Rutgers. Her research work at Amicus is focused on evaluating the in vivo effects of pharmacological chaperones when used alone or in combination with recombinant human enzymes for lysosomal storage disorders.
Mixed lineage leukemia: roles in gene expression, hormone signaling and mRNA processing
Khairul I. Ansari, Subhrangsu S. Mandal
FEBS Journal 277, 1790–1804, April 2010
Subhrangsu Mandal is an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Texas at Arlington. He received his PhD from the Indian Institute of Science and pursued his postdoctoral studies at the University of Alberta and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (HHMI). Currently, his laboratory is investigating the epigenetic aspects of human gene regulation, chromatin dynamics, steroid hormone signalling, endocrine disruption, cholesterol homeostasis, hypoxia signalling and tumorigenesis. He is also developing drugs for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
