Basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent malignant neoplasm in white-skinned individuals. It develops in different body areas, including in the scalp, which is a unique anatomical region due to the h...
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a common kidney tumor in adults. The role of miR-486-5p in RCC is unknown. The aim of our study was to identify new targets regulated by miR-486-5p in RCC, to obtain a de...
The anti-tumor effect of resveratrol has been observed in many cancers. Here, we examined the anti-tumor activity of resveratrol in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells. Resveratrol, in a dose-d...

A carcinoma arising from MERKEL CELLS located in the basal layer of the epidermis and occurring most commonly as a primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin. Merkel cells are tactile cells of neuroectodermal origin and histologically show neurosecretory granules. The skin of the head and neck are a common site of Merkel cell carcinoma, occurring generally in elderly patients. (Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1245)
A patched receptor that may function redundantly with the PATCHED-1 RECEPTOR to modulate hedgehog signaling. It may also play a role in epidermal development and as a TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN. Mutations in the patched-2 gene are associated with BASAL CELL NEVUS SYNDROME; CARCINOMA, BASAL CELL; and MEDULLOBLASTOMA.
The decrease in the cell's ability to proliferate with the passing of time. Each cell is programmed for a certain number of cell divisions and at the end of that time proliferation halts. The cell enters a quiescent state after which it experiences CELL DEATH via the process of APOPTOSIS.
