    L Meng
    Department of Biochemistry, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, USA
    Oncogene 29:5204-13. 2010
    ..Therefore, HSF1 is critical for proliferation of HER2-expressing cells, most likely because it maintains the levels of HSPs, which in turn control regulators of senescence p21 and survivin...

    L Meng
    Department of Biochemistry, Boston University School of Medicine, MA, USA
    Oncogene 30:2836-45. 2011
    ..Therefore, Hsp72 has an essential role in Her2-induced tumorigenesis by regulating oncogene-induced senescence pathways...

    Trends Biochem Sci 38:585-91. 2013
    ..Accordingly, by slowing down translation one can significantly improve protein folding. In this review, we discuss how to target translational processes to improve proteostasis and implications in treating protein misfolding diseases. ..
  4. pmc Molecular chaperones regulate p53 and suppress senescence programs
    Michael Y Sherman
    Department of Biochemistry, Boston University Medical School, 715 Albany Street, K323, Boston, MA 02118, United States
    FEBS Lett 581:3711-5. 2007
    ..Here, we discuss a possibility that in cancer cells high levels of chaperones serve to keep the p53 signaling under control, thus allowing cancer cells to evade the default senescence and form tumors...

    Cell Cycle 6:1873-7. 2007
    ..g., a program of eye development or antibody synthesis in sea urchin. An example of natural turning on of a complex latent program in a lower taxon is discussed...

    Michael Sherman
    Department of Biochemistry, Boston University Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1197:152-7. 2010
    ..Importantly, Hsp72 is able to suppress both p53-dependent and p53-independent senescence pathways. We propose that targeting Hsp72 may be a promising approach toward development of novel cancer therapies...

    Ann N Y Acad Sci 1113:192-201. 2007
    ..In this review we address the dual function of intracellular and extracellular located small Hsps and members of the Hsp70 family and its immunological consequences for cancer immunity...
