Pao Laboratory, Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York, United States of America
PLoS Med 4:e294. 2007..We sought to improve understanding of this process in order to provide insight into mechanisms of sensitivity and/or resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors and to uncover new targets for therapy...
- Superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) is a target for a small molecule identified in a screen for inhibitors of the growth of lung adenocarcinoma cell linesRomel Somwar
High Throughput Screening Core Facility, and Organic Synthesis Core Facility, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY 10065, USA or
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:16375-80. 2011..These results suggest that SOD1 is an LCS-1-binding protein that may act in concert with mutant proteins, such as EGFR and KRAS, to promote cell growth, providing a therapeutic target for compounds like LCS-1...
