We investigated the role of NADPH oxidase (Nox) 4 in colon cancer development. The expression of Nox4, unlike Nox1, was specifically induced in colon carcinoma and was quite similar to that of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)1. TGF-β1 treatment of colon cancer cells upregulated the Nox4 expression and ROS production through SMAD3. Knockdown of Nox4 suppressed TGF-β1-induced cell motility. Nox4 modulated the Rho activity through redox regulation of the low molecular weight protein tyrosine phosphatase (LMW-PTP)-p190RhoGAP pathway upon TGF-β1 stimulation. These finding suggests that Nox4 contributes to TGF-β1-dependent motility of colon carcinoma through the LMW-PTP-p190RhoGAP-Rho signaling pathway.
July 31, 2017 Due to the end of the Yahoo!JAPAN OpenID service, My J-STAGE will end the support of the following sign-in services with OpenID on August 26, 2017: -Sign-in with Yahoo!JAPAN ID -Sign-in with livedoor ID * After that, please sign-in with My J-STAGE ID.
July 03, 2017 There had been a service stop from Jul 2‚ 2017‚ 8:06 to Jul 2‚ 2017‚ 19:12(JST) (Jul 1‚ 2017‚ 23:06 to Jul 2‚ 2017‚ 10:12(UTC)) . The service has been back to normal.We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
