“Evaluation of MLK4 signalling in breast cancer”

PROJECT LEADER

Head: Anna Marusiak / Laboratory of Molecular OncoSignalling

SUBPROJECT DESCRIPTION

In our laboratory we investigate the aspects of signal transduction in cancer. Our new project is focused on evaluating the detailed role of MLK4 signalling in breast cancer progression. MLK4 is a serine/ threonine kinase that plays an important role in various cellular processes including proliferation, differentiation, migration of cells. We have recently proven that MLK4 is highly expressed in breast carcinoma and that it contributes to invasive phenotype of breast cancer cells. Now, we will evaluate the first-in class compounds inhibiting the activity of MLK4 in preclinical tests.
