A gradient of EGFR-ERK signaling has been classically implicated in various developmental processes. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Ogura et al. (2018) show that in the Drosophila tracheal placode, EGFR-ERK signaling propagates via a cell-by-cell relay mechanism rather than a gradient, and this sequential ERK activation controls proper placode invagination.

The activation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is associated with radioresistance in malignant tumors. Specifically, radiation can destroy endoplasmic reticulum (ER) homeostasis to induce E...
TF/FVIIa (Tissue Factor/Active Coagulation factor VII) and EGFR (Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor) signaling both promote malignant progression of colorectal cancer. However, the crosstalk of these tw...
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of lens epithelial cells (LECs) plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of fibrotic cataract. Transforming growth factor-beta (TGFβ) is a potent inducer of t...
Signaling from the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) elicits multiple biological responses, including cell proliferation, migration, and survival. Receptor endocytosis and trafficking are critic...
Rapidly renewing epithelial tissues such as the intestinal epithelium require precise tuning of intercellular adhesion and proliferation to preserve barrier integrity. Here, we provide evidence that d...
Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is one of the most common malignancies in caucasian population. The effect of the immune system on the development of skin tumors has been demonstrated in tra...
BIM deletion polymorphism might be associated with a poor clinical response to EGFR-TKIs in patients who had NSCLC with EGFR mutations. In the study, the investigators want to use EGFR-TKI...

This phase II trial studies how well osimertinib works in treating participants with stage I-IIIA EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer before surgery. Osimertinib may stop the growth of ...
The third generation epidermal growth gactor receptor-tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor（EGFR-TKI） osimertinib has obvious curative effect for EGFR sensitive mutation and T790M mutation(PMID 27...
An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.
A NOD-signaling adaptor protein that contains a C-terminal leucine-rich domain which recognizes bacterial PEPTIDOGLYCAN. It signals via an N-terminal caspase recruitment domain that interacts with other CARD SIGNALING ADAPTOR PROTEINS such as RIP SERINE-THEONINE KINASES. It plays a role in the host defense response by signaling the activation of CASPASES and the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM.
A synthetic PGE2 analog that has an inhibitory effect on gastric acid secretion, a mucoprotective effect, and a postprandial lowering effect on gastrin. It has been shown to be efficient and safe in the treatment of gastroduodenal ulcers.
A sub-family of smad proteins that inhibit cell signaling by RECEPTOR-REGULATED SMAD PROTEINS. They form autoinhibitory feedback loops in the TGF-BETA signaling pathway and mediate signaling cross-talk with other signaling pathways
A NOD signaling adaptor protein that contains two C-terminal leucine-rich domains which recognize bacterial PEPTIDOGLYCAN. It signals via an N-terminal capase recruitment domain that interacts with other CARD SIGNALING ADAPTOR PROTEINS such as RIP SERINE-THEONINE KINASES. The protein plays a role in the host defense response by signaling the activation of CASPASES and the MAP KINASE SIGNALING SYSTEM. Mutations of the gene encoding the nucleotide oligomerization domain 2 protein have been associated with increased susceptibility to CROHN DISEASE.
