Angiogenesis plays a key role in tumor growth and cancer progression. TIE-2-expressing monocytes (TEM) have been reported to critically account for tumor vascularization and growth in mouse tumor experimental models, but the molecular basis of their pro-angiogenic activity are largely unknown. Moreover, differences in the pro-angiogenic activity between blood circulating and tumor infiltrated TEM...

Combined transcriptomic and proteomic studies reveal non-canonical signaling functions in the jasmonate pathway

Liechti, Robin ; Farmer, Edward (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Lausanne, 2005.

Lipid derived signals mediate many stress and defense responses in multicellular euka eukaryotes. Among these are the jasmonates, potently active signaling compounds in plants. Jasmonic acid (JA) and 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (OPDA) are the two best known members of the large jasmonate family. This thesis further investigates their roles as signals using genomic and proteomic approaches. The study...
