The Evolutionarily Conserved Cassette Exon 7b Drives ERG's Oncogenic Properties (2018)
Journal Article
Jumbe, S., Porazinski, S., Oltean, S., Mansell, J., Vahabi, B., Wilson, I., & Ladomery, M. (2019). The Evolutionarily Conserved Cassette Exon 7b Drives ERG's Oncogenic Properties. Translational Oncology, 12(1), 134-142. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tranon.2018.09.001

© 2018 The oncogene ERG encodes an ETS family transcription factor and is implicated in blood, vascular, and bone development and in prostate, blood, and bone cancer. The ERG gene is alternatively spliced; of particular interest is its cassette exon... Read More about The Evolutionarily Conserved Cassette Exon 7b Drives ERG's Oncogenic Properties.

Suppression of the in vitro growth and development of Microdochium nivale by phosphite (2018)
Journal Article
Dempsey, J., Wilson, I. D., Spencer-Phillips, P., & Arnold, D. L. (2018). Suppression of the in vitro growth and development of Microdochium nivale by phosphite. Plant Pathology, 67(6), 1296-1306. https://doi.org/10.1111/ppa.12846

© 2018 British Society for Plant Pathology The ascomycete fungus Microdochium nivale is a major pathogen of many species of the gramineae. Control measures rely heavily on chemical fungicides, making alternative means of disease reduction desirable....

Autoregulation of the human splice factor kinase CLK1 through exon skipping and intron retention (2018)
Journal Article
Uzor, S., Zorzou, P., Bowler, E., Porazinski, S., Wilson, I. D., & Ladomery, M. (2018). Autoregulation of the human splice factor kinase CLK1 through exon skipping and intron retention. Gene, 670, 46-54. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gene.2018.05.095

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. Alternative splicing is a key process required for the regulation of gene expression in normal development and physiology. It is regulated by splice factors whose activities are in turn regulated by splice factor kinases and phos...

Hypoxia leads to significant changes in alternative splicing and elevated expression of CLK splice factor kinases in PC3 prostate cancer cells (2018)
Journal Article
Bowler, E., Porazinski, S., Uzor, S., Thibault, P., Durand, M., Lapointe, E., …Ladomery, M. (2018). Hypoxia leads to significant changes in alternative splicing and elevated expression of CLK splice factor kinases in PC3 prostate cancer cells. BMC Cancer, 18(1), 355. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12885-018-4227-7

© 2018 The Author(s). Background: Mounting evidence suggests that one of the ways that cells adapt to hypoxia is through alternative splicing. The aim of this study was firstly to examine the effect of hypoxia on the alternative splicing of cancer as...
