Tyrosine kinase signalling in breast cancer

Nancy Hynes

  1. Content type: Review

    The ability of growth factors and their cognate receptors to induce mammary epithelial proliferation and differentiation is dependent on their ability to activate a number of specific signal transduction pathw...

  2. Content type: Review

    Both the non-receptor tyrosine kinase, c-Src, and members of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor family are overexpressed in high percentages of human breast cancers. Because these molecules are plasma ...

  3. Content type: Review

    The past decade has seen the definition of key signalling pathways downstream of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) in terms of their components and the protein-protein interactions that facilitate signal transd...

  4. Content type: Review

    The fibroblast growth factors [Fgfs (murine), FGFs (human)] constitute a large family of ligands that signal through a class of cell-surface tyrosine kinase receptors. Fgf signalling has been associated in vitro ...

  5. Content type: Review

    Cross-communication between different signalling systems is critical for the integration of multiple and changing environmental influences on individual cells. The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) has b...
